  • This is a tenderly moving, expertly told love-story of events beginning over a century ago but not brought to light until 1982. Of all the Madame Butterfly tales, it ranges furthest, its ripples continuing when one has finished reading it

  • The love story between a British Army Officer and a young Japanese woman that remained a secret to the word until their letters were found is more astonishing than the opera it mirrors

  • A powerful and remarkable love story

    London Evening Standard

    Independent on Sunday
  • Seductive and intriguing story, told with sympathy and insight
