Set in 17th century Japan, Mineko is a rich, evocative and harsh saga of a young girl s quest for vengeance.
Just imagine for one moment that you are happy, at home and surrounded by a loving family. Your long black hair is being gently brushed by an older sister while she hums a sweet lullaby just for you. You can hear your twin brothers playing in the next room.
Now imagine as suddenly your whole world is thrown into turmoil. Brutal Samurai invade your home, murdering family, servants and guards in front of you. Your sister and you, as the only survivor s, are whisked away to a desolate mountain castle. You later watch through tear-drenched eyes as she is ripped from your arms and taken away.
You are only six years old.
This is Mineko s life. This is how her childhood in 17th century Japan began.
For the next decade, Mineko endures as she learns to survive in a world filled with hate, terrifying abuse and hunger. All the while she dreams of two things; a sister that one day returns to save her – and of someone to love.
But little girls grow up. And little girls learn. And little sisters never forget. The only difference between revenge and vengeance is the intensity of the punishment that is inflicted – and Mineko will settle for nothing less than extreme vengeance.
