The story of two women whose lives intersect in late nineteenth century Japan, this novel is also a portrait of Japan as it opens its doors to the West. Told through the enchanting voice of Aurelia, an American orphan adopted by proprietors of a tea ceremony school, this book is "equal parts love story, imaginative history and bildungsroman" (Publishers Weekly).--From publisher description.
