"The plot is slow at first, but has finally picked up after 200 pages. But I have been patient. Like Shogun, Ripe with political intrigue and war, this novel plays close to the nose. You never really know what the characters are thinking despite reams of inner dialogue. Still, I can't wait to get through this one." Jun 02, 2016 11:29AM

“You are a wise man, Major, and I will consider your advice with great care—and humility." He finished his tea and rose from the table to go to his room. "But I must ask you, do you really understand what it means to be in love with an unsuitable woman?"

"My dear boy," said the Major. "Is there really any other kind?”
