A True-Life Madame Butterfly
The Rise and Fall of a Romance Between Two People and Two Nations

This is the true story of an extraordinary love affair that began when a young Army officer fell in love with a Japanese woman in the early years of the twentieth century. An astonishing story of enduring love and great loss, Sword and Blossom is based on a treasure trove of more than eight hundred letters that chronicle Arthur Hart-Synnot and Masa Suzuki's attempts to make a life together despite long periods of separation, racial prejudice, and political turbulence. Their doomed relationship, like that of their countries, was part of a confused age of extremes and contradictions, of violence and beauty, and of destinies etched out amid the conflicts of their day.
