The Chrysanthemum and the Rose
There is peace in Derbyshire as a new generation of the Darcy family begins, but the younger Mr. and Mrs. Darcy set their sights far away, to Japan, an island nation closed off to all but a few foreigners. There they will travel to find Georgiana Darcy’s elusive former teacher, the wandering thing Mugin, so that she can finally complete her training before settling down to married life in the English countryside.
But getting into Japan, a country hostile to Westerners and controlled by the Tokugawa shogun, won’t be easy, and finding Mugin will be even harder. Is the young couple up to the challenge?
In Altman’s eighth installment of the Darcys and the Bingleys, we travel far abroad to the dangerous world of 19th-Century Asia, where political tensions are high and danger is very real.
