Inspired by the timeless poetry of ancient Japan, 'Song of the Nightingale' tells the fictional tale of Lady Nyo and her samurai warrior husband, Lord Nyo. With a deft juxtaposition of prose and poetry, Jane Kohut-Bartels' vivid storytelling will transport the reader on a journey of secrets, subterfuges, quarrels, despair, love, dreams, miracles and, ultimately, redemption.
