A fictionalized account of the author’s experiences in Japan, written as a story, meant to illustrate Shinto philosophy, ethics and customs.

According to the Publisher’s Preface:

“The desire of the author is to guide her readers faithfully along this time-honoured, half-obliterated “Way of the Gods,” clearing the path with reverent, not iconoclastic hands, because recognising it as the Way by which the Japanese were divinely led to their present mental altitude. The path is traced in a threefold aspect – Ethical, Philosophical, and Romantic.
