I like this story. Set in 17th century Japan these novels are so well written I feel like I am a part of the time and right there with the people. This is another in the Sano Ichiro and his family historical crime series. Laura Joh Rowlands writing is captivating, the story is fast paced, complex and full of fascinating characters. First rate for me.
I too enjoyed this book and recommend it to my contemporaries and teenage readers 16 and older. Doctor-at-Bass! Taylor A.
This was my first book by Laura Joh Rowland. ‘The Shogun’s Daughter’ was an interesting historical fiction which takes place in feudal Japan; the year 1704. Ironically the book was actually about whodunit! Who killed the Shogun’s daughter?
From cover to cover the book reveals the conflict between Sano’s family and that of his arch rival, the cunning Yanagisawa. While not quite the same - made in Japan - intrigue as the master story teller, James Clavell in his epic book ‘Shogun,’ this book was nethertheless very enjoyable and I recommend it to readers 16 and older. Senior Doctor-at-Bass! D. A.
