I love Laura Joh Rowland's books. If you like Victorian era novels, especially mysteries, then you will probably like this one. Unfortunately for me, I am not into Victorian novels and I am way too used to Rowland's feudal Japan mysteries (I have read them all). So I decided to try this new genre of hers, but after about 60 pages, realized it wasn't going to keep my attention. I am very impressed with Rowland's creativity and courage to take this leap from one side of the world to the other, and one culture to another. I hope you enjoy the book.

Look for the truth. It’s what my father often told me while he was teaching me photography. “Look for the truth under the surface of what’s before your eyes. It’s what makes a good picture.”
“How do I know the truth when I see it?” I would ask.
“Your heart will beat faster.”
