Synopsis:

Japan, 1587. Sen must find a husband to marry into her family’s swordsmith business. She seeks a Christian husband, though Christianity is banned.

Enter Nobuhiro. Third son of a high-level samurai, Nobuhiro fled his harsh father and apprenticed himself to a swordsmith. He yearns to prove his worth.

They seem an ideal match. But for Sen, the choice is faith or family. For Nobuhiro, choosing a Christian ends any reconciliation with his family. Can love be forged from the impossible?


What a fascinating story!  I loved reading about 16th Century Japan and the conflict between the Christians and the Buddhists and enjoyed learning more about Samurais and sword-making.

The story had the perfect pace.  There was mystery, action, intrigue, suspense and romance.  A great combination, especially added with history.  It was written in a compelling way that made you see Japan and experience the village as if you were there.  The characters were ones you related to and cared for.

Though the story is about a Christian and her struggles, the story is not Christian fiction as much as Historical fiction.
