I did not enjoy this book. While it was beautifully written, the tale of poor Chiyo disturbed me. I was disturbed by the way that she was treated from the day she entered Kyoto and more disturbed by the ending which to me seemed like a cop out. I know many love this book, but unfortunately, I cannot say that I enjoyed it. I was happy to have finished!
