9780857382979: Blossoms and Shadows

Japan, 1857. For centuries Japan has been on its own; isolated by choice from the rest of the world. But the Western powers are now at its shores demanding to be let in, the government is crumbling and revolution is building. The age of the samurai is ending and in its place a new Japan will be born. A young woman is readying herself for marriage in this, the most tumultuous period of her nation's history. The daughter of a doctor, Tsuru has been working alongside him and learning the ways of medicine all her life. When her father allows her to marry the man she loves - a fellow doctor - she believes her life will be all she's dreamed it could be. Happily married, working amongst men as an equal. But Japanese society does not work this way. The men of the times - boys she's known since childhood - are determined to expel the foreigners, using violence and whatever else they need to make their message heard. The women are expected to be hidden at home, or behind the paper walls of the tea houses. Tsuru is far too able to accept this and she is drawn into a shadowy world of subversion, political intrigue and a dangerous love. In time, she is working on the battlefields, alongside men, to care for the wounded. BLOSSOMS AND SHADOWS is a compelling tale of love and war, women and men, and the rise of modern Japan. It shines a brilliant light on a time in history that few have known about until now, though the change it brought continues to ripple around the world.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

1857. For centuries, Japan has been on its own; isolated by choice from the rest of the world. But the Western powers are now at its shores, its government is crumbling and revolution is building. The age of the samurai is ending and in its place a new Japan will be born. Into this turmoil steps a young woman. Despite her secret ambition to become a doctor, Tsuru still expects to marry a man of her father's choosing, but her life is overtaken by the beliefs of the new age. Surrounded by young men, fighting for their Emperor to expel the foreigners, and caught up in the politics of these turbulent times, she will be forced to make some difficult choices. When war comes, Tsuru's struggle to be treated as an equal will take her onto the battlefields... Blossoms and Shadows is a compelling and beautiful tale of love and war, women and me, and the rise of modern Japan.
