by Douglas Penick
This fascinating historical novel brings to life the Chinese court of Zhu Di, the Yong Le Emperor, who reigned from 1403-1424 and made China a world power.
The story is narrated by the fictional eunuch Ma Yun, who served in the emperor's court. Replete with military campaigns, religious ceremonies, and the philosophical foundation that informs the Emperor's decisions through times good and bad, Journey of the North Star will appeal to readers interested in Eastern religions, history, philosophy, and the political outlook that still influences China today.
"With extraordinarily evocative details, moments of disarming poignancy, and an overall verisimilitude that suggests this might really be the found work of a devoted courtier.” -- Publishers Weekly
