A novel of historical fiction, it is the story of a Jesuit missionary sent to seventeenth century Japan, who endured persecution that followed the defeat of the Shimbara Rebellion.

Genre: Historical    

"One of the finest historical novels written by anyone, anywhere . . . Flawless." - David Mitchell

"A remarkable work . . . sombre, delicate and startlingly empathetic." - John Updike
