My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another book and yet another perspective. I never had any understanding of that era in that particular place, or how Geisha were brought up. This is not one of those fairy tales if that’s what you are looking for. It is for me a story of how difficult life is and how much influence men have had and how they dominated women. If you want to read this book, read it with empathy and compassion. While reading you will experience disgust, question some moral choices and all together hate some characters and the way of the society and I think this is the reason why this book is a good read!
