Book Description Text Publishing, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. 1. A powerful historical novel based on the remarkable life of the man who inspired Madame Butterfly1858. A young Scotsman grasps the chance of escape to foreign lands and takes a posting as a trader in Japan. Within ten years Thomas Glover amasses a great fortune, learns the ways of the samurai, and, on the other side of the law, brings about the overthrow of the Shogun.Yet beneath Glover's astonishing success lies a man cut to the heart. His love affair with a courtesan ? a woman who, unknown to him, would bear him the son for which he had always longed ? would form a tragedy so dramatic as to be immortalised in the stories behind Madame Butterfly and Miss Saigon.The Pure Land relives in fiction the arc of Glover's true-life rise and fall, and forges a hundred-year saga that culminates in the annihilation of Nagasaki in 1945. Alan Spence has produced a modern epic, at once a rattling good adventure, a heart-wrenching love story and a journey of the spirit. Paperback. Seller Inventory # MM-40020504
