's review

I have no particular knowledge of Japanese mythology, but this was an eminently readable story. We meet the teenage Rin and her ailing father after they have departed Edo following samurai loss of political/military status. When the pair come across an isolated village, it allows them a place to recuperate. But it quickly becomes clear that their new home and its inhabitants have secrets.

I enjoyed how the story unfolded, and how Rin's actions and thoughts had a tension between appropriate samurai behaviour and occasional teenage frustration with life.

A nicely delivered, slightly spooky tale that doesn't take long to read.
