Duty requires sacrifice...

Following his father’s forced seppuku, Bunshiro and his mother are left with nothing but a meager income and the shame of his father’s alleged treason. After years of dedicating himself to swordsmanship, and trying to forget the memory of his childhood love, Fuku, he becomes a crop inspector for the fief and finds himself ensnared by the same devious retainers that cost his father his life. 

When he finds that Fuku, now one of the Lord’s concubines, is also an unwilling pawn in the same deadly game, Bunshiro is forced to confront an undying love thought to be buried long ago, but which binds him with the strings of fate.
