Summary
In 1799, the artificial island of Dejima lies in Nagasaki Harbor as the Empire of Japan's de facto gate blocking Western invluence. Here, at the farthest outpost of the Dutch East Indies Company, Jacob de Zoet comes to make his fortune before reuniting with his fiancee in Holland. But fate takes a dangerous turn when Jacob--who, like all outsiders, is not allowed to set foot on the mainland--falls hopelessly in love with a young Japanese woman
Summary
Dispatched to the influential Japanese port of Dejima in 1799, ambitious clerk Jacob de Zoet resolves to earn enough money to deserve his wealthy fiancee, an effort that is challenged by his relationship with the midwife daughter of a Samurai
