Publisher Description

This is the true story of the tragic life of Okichi Saito who became the pawn to

placate Townsend Harris, the first American Consul to Japan in the turbulent mid

1800's . This poignant story takes place during a period in history when the "Black Ships" arrived in Japan and changed many lives, especially those of Okichi and her fiancé and

lover, Tsurumatsu. Like a butterfly, Okichi was beautiful but fragile, easily

tossed about and bruised by the stronger forces of political wheeling and

dealing. 

The story takes the readers on a journey from the wild windswept fishing village

of Shimoda to the colorful world of the geishas Okichi was literally sold into,

then onto the awesome stage of politics and power and finally to a lonely

outcast who walked into the  icy waters of the Shimoda Bay one cold grey March

morning….
