Kwiat śliwy, mroczny cień by Lian Hearn

Opowieść o miłości i wojnie oraz o walce kobiety o własne miejsce w świecie mężczyzn. Jej tłem jest historia rewolucji w Japonii, równie ważnej jak rewolucja francuska, a nieznanej szerzej w Europie.

Rewolucja obyczajowa z lat sześćdziesiątych XX wieku zmieniła jednak feudalną Japonię w nowoczesne państwo. W takiej rzeczywistości przyszło żyć Tsuru, córce lekarza. Dziewczyna, zamiast podążać śladami siostry i zgodnie z tradycją poślubić mężczyznę wybranego przez rodziców, związała się z ukochanym i, tak jak ojciec, poświęciła się medycynie.

Five years ago I was in the northeastern region of Japan, a few months before the devastating tsunami of In Iwate prefecture I saw young men rehearsing dances for festivals — the oni sword dances and the deer dances. Their masks and costumes were striking but the thing that made the greatest impression on me was the resonance of a vanished world, where the lives of people and animals were more closely entwined and where the supernatural was an accepted element of life. Up until the twentieth century representations of humans in landscapes portray people as tiny compared to the vastness of forests and mountains. Standing next to one of these young men, I had a flash of seeing backwards through time and I knew a novel was going to come into existence. I wanted to try and recreate this medieval world where the human response to both nature and the spiritual world was one of awe and wonder.

From the author of the phenomenal and best-selling Tales of the Otori series comes a new stand-alone historical novel set in 19th century Japan. For centuries Japan has been on its own; isolated by choice from the rest of the world. But the Western powers are now at its shores, its government is crumbling and revolution is building. The age of the samurai is ending and in its place a new Japan will be born. Into this turmoil steps a young woman.
