Mitch Daviesabout this book: A samurai romance adventure in the beauty of feudal Japan where the opposing values of two under utilized samurai clash. At stake is a way of life and a woman.
Japan is on the verge of outlawing the rule of the samurai class; a class that represents about ten percent of the population. Foreign pressure has caused two factions of the leadership to try and take control of the country. One of the story's two main samurai fights to help advance his clan's policies which even he finds to be unclear, while the other is indifferent, knowing that it doesn't matter who rules the country because there will be little change for those who work.
A historic event that symbolized the beginning of the decline of the samurai class creates a conflict that results in the destruction of a relationship and a revenge oriented pursuit.
People in power, pushing their own agendas have no idea of the effect their actions have on the ordinary members of society. Visit a small in at a post station along the Nakasendo Highway and live an adventure in Japan.
