Three young Japanese girls of the Meiji era are chosen by their empress to learn the strange ways of Gilded Age America, only to return after ten years to a home they no longer know--“other to everyone except each other.” Such are the incredible lives of Sutematsu, Shige and Ume, lived on the cusp of modernity, witnessing the collision of East and West, tradition and progress, history and the future. A great nonfiction summer read--the perfect blend of history, culture, and women’s studies.
