In 1614, a delegation sails from Japan to Spain to petition King Philip III and Pope Paul V to open lines of trade between the two countries. Far from his home, a samurai named Shiro makes friends and enemies among the "barbarian" Spaniards and his own people in equal measure, struggling to reconcile his place within the two cultures. But intrigue, deception, love, and cruelty are universal, and Shiro finds himself embroiled in the courtly politics and scandalous affairs of the Spanish families surrounding him in ways that will change his life forever. Inspired by "one of history's most forgotten chapters," The Samurai of Seville is a vivid historical novel that explores the challenges and (sometimes violent) consequences that occur when two very different cultures collide.
