Kira Sakamichi is a career-driven woman, trying to achieve success before her mother's constant interference sentences her to a relationship. But when a grudging drive to meet her mother's latest "selection" ends in a lake accident, Kira wakes up lost in the past, the concubine of a 16th-century samurai, and mother to his six-year-old son. 

When actions in battle lead to the samurai's condemnation, Kira learns that she and her son will share the samurai's fate. Only by understanding the importance of duty and family in both time periods can they survive.

My thoughts: While this is a relatively short novella, I found it to be well written and an interesting story of a young woman who travels back in time to Japan. I haven't read a lot about Japanese history, outside of world history classes that I had to take in school, so I found the historical element new and fascinating. The characters are well written and the story packs a lot into it over the course of about 100 pages. I enjoyed this tale and look forward to reading more by the author.

I received this book from Just Read. This is my honest review.
