The youngest daughter of a high-ranking samurai, Etsu was destined to become a priestess and was molded for that path by some of the best teachers. But her fate changed when she was married off to a businessman and sent across the world to America. Finding herself miles away from the life she had imagined, she had to learn all about a new world-and come to terms with how it was changing her beliefs about what she had been taught and what she still held dear from her upbringing in Japan.
This beautiful and heartwarming story told from an interesting and unique perspective follows the life of a first-generation Japanese immigrant coming to terms with an entirely new culture.
