Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

How do you start a new life, leaving behind all you love?
It’s 1641, and when Midori Kumashiro, the orphaned daughter of a warlord, is told she has to leave Japan or die, she has no choice but to flee to England. Midori is trained in the arts of war, but is that enough to help her survive a journey, with a lecherous crew and an attractive captain she doesn’t trust?

Having come to Nagasaki to trade, the last thing Captain Nico Noordholt wants is a female passenger, especially a beautiful one. How can he protect her from his crew when he can’t keep his own eyes off her?

During their journey, Nico and Midori form a tentative bond, but they both have secrets that can change everything. When they arrive in England, a civil war is brewing, and only by standing together can they hope to survive…

Winner of the 2014 Best Historical Novel of the Year Award.

This is the sequel to Scarlet Kimono. I think Scarlet Kimono is my favorite story still by Courtenay, mainly because of the adventure and the exotic setting, but this is just as well-written and has to be my favorite heroine.

Midori's parents are dead and her own country is exiling half-breeds like her. She's half Japanese, half foreigner, and during the time this book takes place, they were exiling all Christians whether they practiced or not, including those of Japanese blood, and though Midori doesn't practice Christianity, she must leave to save her life.

And this is why she runs into a group of seamen at camp and ends up in a sword fight. This is why she meets Nicco, the captain of a trading ship. This girl is imprisoned, put on a ship full of horny, vengeful men, drugged in an opium den, and yet still lands with dignity and grace in Plymouth England...where she has to suddenly convert to Puritan religion and customs.

Majority of us would have broke down at some point, but Midori handles everything life throws at her. She doesn't need a man. She proves time and time again she can do just fine without Nicco, the captain who has stolen her heart. Matter of fact, she turns him down at first.

But if he loves her, must must work for her, he must restore his honor as he lost it at some point in her eyes...and I'm not revealing a thing more.

The historical is rich and spot-on. The war with King Charles is ongoing throughout the last half of the novel and though I'm not overly fond of England's wars (Sorry, England. And I think this is why I prefer Scarlet Kimono.) and normally I wouldn't care less who won or not, I could really feel this little town, Midori's family included, really banding together. They have a lot of heart. Midori has a lot of heart. She runs out into BATTLE. I mean, I LOVE this chick.

I didn't think the romance was Courtenay's strongest, but I still enjoyed this story. It's an adventure tale following an amazing young woman who faces more in the span of a few years then many of us do in a lifetime. There's also a strong moral, more than one actually. Family is important, protecting them is important. Sometimes you must do what's right for them. And words...words can have more effect on people than you realize.

I loved The Scarlet Kimono. Adored it, even, so The Gilded Fan had a lot to live up to, given that it was toted as a sequel to The Scarlet Kimono.
In general, the book doesn't disappoint. Ms Courtenay is a skilled and consistent writer, and she must have spent hours,days, weeks, months doing her research, historical facts littered through the text in a very lighthanded way. Midori is an interesting, independent woman - somewhat of a contradiction to how we would perceive women in the seventeenth century - Nico is a man with baggage of his own, a man very attracted to his half- Japanese passenger. The building tension between them is well-depicted - even if at times I find it unbelievable this skilfully stoked fire wouldn't explode into a bonfire long before it does - and Midori's issues with her new life in England and what she perceives as Nico's deceitful behaviour is presented in a credible manner.
I close the book thinking that making Midori's acquaintance has been something of a treat. Nico is less memorable, however handsome and endearing he is. However, this is an entertaining tale that will keep you happily submerged for some hours - preferably with a box of chocolates close at hand :)
Major plus for the beautiful cover!

Rather cheesy, far-fetched plot. Can't say I really cared for it.

This story is a continuation of The Scarlet Kimino. The Gilded fan starts in Japan when the daughter of Hannah and Taro has lost both of her parents. Midori has a half brother who helps her escape as the Emperor is murdering all half castes and foreigners. Midori boards a ship to get back to England. Of course there is some drama on the high seas. When Midori meets her English family we see from the first book how things and people have changed. There is also a civil war. These are the kind of books that burn into your memory they are so well written

A must read! Make sure you also read Scarlet Kimono as well! The 2 books present a story of a young English girl who ends up in Japan - married to a Daimyo, has a daughter who is forced to leave Japan and goes back to England only to return to Japan with her English husband.
