9780061662379: The Scent of Sake

She was taught to submit, to obey . . . but she dreamed of an empire.

The sole heir to the House of Omura, a venerable family of Kobe sake brewers, nineteen-year-old Rie hears but cannot heed her mother's advice: that in nineteenth-century Japan, a woman must "kill the self" or her life will be too difficult to bear. In this strict, male-dominated society, women may not even enter the brewery—and repressive tradition demands that Rie turn over her family's business to the inept philanderer she's been forced to marry. She is even expected to raise her husband's children by another woman—a geisha—so that they can eventually run the Omura enterprise.

But Rie's pride will not allow her to relinquish what is rightfully hers. With courage, cunning, brilliance, and skill, she is ready to confront every threat that arises before her—from prejudice to treachery to shipwrecks to the insidious schemes of relentless rivals—in her bold determination to forge a magnificent dynasty...and to, impossibly, succeed.

An epic and breathtaking saga that spans generations as it sweeps through the heart of a century, Joyce Lebra's The Scent of Sake is a vivid and powerful entry into another world...and an unforgettable portrait of a woman who would not let that world defeat her.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Original. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the early 1800s, Japan s Sake was brewed by a select few family dynasties. Rie, the daughter of the house of Omura, has always been fascinated by her family s sake business, even though it is considered unwomanly to take an interest in male concerns and especially bad luck for a woman to even enter a sake brewing house. Her job is to marry well so that her parents can pass down the business to another generation. But, when her chosen husband is more interested in fathering many children with the town s Geishas then in keeping the business alive, Rie must take matters into her own hands or risk losking the business that is her life. She makes a radical decision that may cost her everything. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9780061662379
