Synopsis: Hardback, ex-library, with usual stamps and markings, in good all round condition.

From Publishers Weekly: Set in Japan, this over-long saga of two entwined families draws on the carnage of World War II for much of its dramatic appeal. For three generations, the Hosokawa-Napier silk works flourishes under the joint ownership of American and Japanese heirs. Threatened by bankruptcy in 1936, Douglas Napier and Baron Hosokawa strike an uneasy, though profitable, deal with Germany to produce war goods that fuel the conflict brewing in Europe. Their enduring partnership is also threatened from within by young Max Napier and the Baron's daughter, Shizue, star-crossed lovers determined to defy the unbending traditions that separate their worlds. When war engulfs Europe, Douglas attempts to redress old wrongs by saving Jewish refugees and is interned in a prison camp when Japan enters the fray. Max remains free through a trick of fate but is forced to fight on the American side, torn by the knowledge that the war may destroy both the woman and the land he loves. The novel suffers from heavy padding and uneven writing; descriptions are rich, but the dialogue if often stilted. Vivid war scenes include the bombing of Nagasaki and its terrible aftermath. 100,000 first printing; $100,000 ad/promo.
