The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
RM Reader Pick!
“This is a beautifully written tale set in 19th Century Japan about a young man employed by the Dutch East India Company. It is part love story, part mystery and part historical novel. I loved it because the prose is just gorgeous and the story is genuinely riveting. David Mitchell is a genius as far as I’m concerned and so versatile…” –Denise Tomlinson, Lawyer & avid reader – Cayman Islands
