The story begins in 1497, with the marriage and death on the same day, of Jeffrey Thurston; dead by the hand of his new wife. As he lay dying, Jeffrey laid a curse upon both families, hers and his brother's. She thought quickly, and told him, contemptuously, that the curse would not be allowed by the gods unless there was also some means to see it lifted. He was not sure he could believe her, but what if....? He stipulated three impossible conditions. The story moves on almost 450 years to China, where a Japanese officer in the occupying army has been decapitated, as he was about to rape a young western woman. The first of three conditions has been met. It then moves on to a girls' boarding school in England just after WWWII. The necessary conditions to meet the remaining two steps come close to being fulfilled when a male teacher, who was blinded in that war comes into that school, where that young woman from China is now teaching. Neither of these two individuals knows anything of what is about to happen around them, or can understand why they are so strongly drawn to each other.show more
