By 1850, Japan had been closed to the outside world for centuries. It was a secret, hidden world. And deep within Edo (now Tokyo) was the Yoshiwara − “The Floating World.” The center of pleasure. And within the Yoshiwara was the Hidden House. The place that only the very wealthiest could afford. The place where the geisha were…special. And in the Hidden House lived Midori No Me. Half Japanese, half foreign Barbarian, born to captivity. She was trained to dedicate her life to serving the wealthiest men in Japan. Defiled at 13 when her virginity was sold to the highest bidder. Possessed by the greatest actor in the Kabuki theatre. Stolen from him by the most powerful Yakuza in Edo. The geisha who escaped from the Floating World. The Geisha with the Green Eyes.

This richly descriptive and painstakingly researched novel brings the opulence of the Qing Court to life as Yaqian and Empress Cixi’s lives intertwine over six decades.
