Publisher Description

The year is 1861. Hervé Joncour is a French merchant of silkworms, who combs the known world for their gemlike eggs. Then circumstances compel him to travel farther, beyond the edge of the known, to a country legendary for the quality of its silk and its hostility to foreigners: Japan.There Joncour meets a woman. They do not touch; they do not even speak. And he cannot read the note she sends him until he has returned to his own country. But in the moment he does, Joncour is possessed.

Mzhenya ,

Short, romantic

It should be read in one sitting. It says the book is 144 pgs. but it is actually only 91 print pages, consisting of short chapters, at most one page long per chapter. Author's writing style is nice, he repeats certain phrases throughout the book but it kind of places you in that era of late 1800s.
It is for a true romantic with a small twist at the end.
I never saw the major motion picture that's based on this book.
