This book was purchased for me by my DH. It is the best book I have ever read. The contents are historical and Richard must have done a tremendous amount of research in order to write this book. I could not put it down. I would highly recommend it.
A masterfully told story of the meeting of two vastly different ways of life, a novel that compels the reader with the force of history and the sheer sweep of its storytelling as it brings to life the generations of two families who forged a great business dynasty from fragile threads of the finest silk.
A good read.
