Intrigue and danger increase as Princess Kazunomiya's once-sheltered life in nineteenth-century Japan changes, in Newbery Honor author Kathryn Lasky's latest addition to THE ROYAL DIARIES series.

Kazunomiya, along with her royal family, is thought to be a divinity, descended from the goddess of the sun, and she lives an extremely sheltered life. However, when a Japanese general signs a treaty with the white-faced men from America, uncertainty and turmoil erupt in the kingdom. But the external threats do not compare to the tangled intrigue, romance, and politics that dominate the imperial palace, as wives and queens plot to destroy Kazunomiya and her mother.

In mid-19th century Japan, the imperial court's and Shogun's battle for power intensifies with the arrival of Americans demanding a treaty. Told from the point of view of Princess Kazunomiya, this part of Japanese history is given a personal spin as one of the people who ultimately help to bring about a new Japan relates the events and occurrences from the 1858 imperial court.
