Publisher's Summary

After the execution of her father, the young and beautiful Lady Asano is in grave danger from the powerful Lord Kira. In order to save herself Asano must find Oishi, the leader of the fighting men of her clan. She believes he is 300 miles to the southwest in the imperial city of Kyoto. Disguising her loveliness in the humble garments of a traveling priest, and calling herself Cat, Lady Asano travels the fabled Tokaido Road. Her only tools are her quick wits, her samurai training, and her deadly, six-foot-long naginata. And she will need them all, for a ronin has been hired to pursue her, a mysterious man who will play a role in Cat's drama that neither could have ever imagined.

Boring.

I couldn't finish this mess. It was so bogged down in descriptions that the plot moved at a snail's pace. I enjoy a SLOW story but this book barely moved at all.

SKIP IT.

Awesome!

A bit hard to concentrate on the story at times. Still a wonderful book that I highly recommend!

Fabulous book!

Read it years ago, and can't wait to hear the audio version! A different take on the 47 Ronin legend.

Classic quality writing

This a beautifully Witten and read book. I thoroughly enjoyed the read, it never got boring or predictable, and left me feeling like I'd taken the journey. Great read.
