In Japan, it is widely believed that everyone’s life is bound by the red thread of their fate. The thread connects to all those we come in contact with throughout our lives. Thus, each path in life is predestined.

Terue knows this. Just as she knows that one day her red thread will guide her to Kazhua, the daughter she was forced to abandon on the day of her birth in Edo’s

"The Red Thread of Fate" is book 2 in the trilogy and the suspense continues to build as Terue/Tara follows her husband Callum through thick and thin. In book 1, Terue lives in Virginia in America. She loses her husband Simon when he went to Japan to look for their daughter Kazhua in Japan. Terue meets Callum at the plantation in Virginia, helping him with the underground railroad to free the slaves. Callum proposes to Terue and she marries him. They move to his native Scotland until the war in ...more

The Red Thread of Fate #2 - As good as The Song of the Wild Geese is, Red Thread outdoes The Song. Again, well written, well edited and knowledgeable of the subject matter, the author takes the reader through other countries and cultures as seen through the eyes and experiences of the Geisha. The pace is fast, never slowing down, and there is plenty of intrigue, suspense, romance and hardship. While her rescue in Turkey was a little unrealistic, too easy, but sometimes luck happens, there are pl ...more

This is the lovely continuing story of Terue, a Geisha that fled Japan leaving her infant daughter behind to be with the man she loved. It is not merely a love story, but filled with historical events and adventure, a beautiful look at different cultures and how they blend together through human connections.

Terue, now called Tara to accommodate the Scottish tongue, is happily settled with her husband Callum, Lord Kyle, in the castle he inherited in the Scottish highlands. Life here is very diffe

Terue, the young Japanese Geisha is now Lady Kyle, living in the highlands of Scotland with her beloved Callum. But Britain is at war with Russia and there is a lot of talk about signing up. Callum feels duty bound to do so and Terue, better known as Tara decides to join him in the Crimea, nursing the troops.

India Millar does a fabulous job wither vivid description of the horrors of war and the agonising cold, filth and pain in the camps. Again, a real page turner, I ached alongside Terue and my

Very engaging read.

I read the first two books of this series. The continuing plot is intriguing, definitely held my interest. The world of the geisha, for all its seeming class and beauty, is certainly a sad one. I was also fascinated to see how the protagonist was received beyond her native Japan, and indeed how she received others. The intercultural exchange, from the Japanese perspective, was very insightful. One thing I did not appreciate: the many detailed intimacy scenes. I thought it was

The story has been very well thought out and thoroughly researched. The Author does not disappoint.
Fast paced, heart wrenching, with hardships, suspense, intrigue and romance, this is a captivating tale with interesting and unique characters.
The book is very well written and edited and the reader is taken on a

Tara and Callum are a unique match, he Scottish, and she Japanese. How they came together is a unique story. This is a riveting story laced with the beautiful spirit of a Japanese lady, and the sweet love and devotion she and her husband hold for one another. A very rewarding read.
