This is very much a book of two halves. The first sets everything up, and then the second delivers payback for the time that you have invested reading the first.

The story is about an English Merchant who lost his son more than a dozen years ago. This narrative runs alongside the story of what actually happened to his son. The two are woven together very well as revelations in one directly impact on your understanding of what is happening in the other.

The story is set in the 13th Century, and features some interesting historical facts, such as the womens only written language that existed in China and indeed only died out in 2004.

The second half of the book is awesome, and I read it in a couple if hours. It did take me several weeks to get to that point though...
