Blossoms and Shadows free pdf This is the story of the birth of modern Japan, told by Tsuru, a young woman who breaks every stereotype of the Japanese lady. We meet her on the day of her sister's wedding, and soon realise that she will not accept the same domestic role that her sister is about to take on. Instead, Tsuru is ready to embrace the new world, defend her beliefs, look for love, and follow her career as a doctor working alongside her husband on the battlefields. In the mid-1860s, Japan was in the grip of a revolution almost as tumultuous as the French Revolution 100 years earlier. This book lets readers feel they are there among the revolutionaries, guided by the engaging character of Tsuru, as she battles against the conventions of the day and falls into a forbidden love.
