Kurenai the Crimson 1865 chronicles the tale of three very distinctly different people and how their journeys intertwine in the waning years of the Samurai era. A wonderfully written story, that gives you a yearning for the characters to go forth and do better, and not to get caught.. Hiding because of a faith is extremely brave..The life of a geisha is an exceptional one.
