Silk and SongBook - 2017
Beijing, 1322. Sixteen-year-old Wu Johanna is the granddaughter of the legendary trader Marco Polo. In the wake of her father's death, Johanna finds that lineage counts for little amid the disintegrating court of the Khan. Johanna's destiny lies with her grandfather, in Venice. So, with a small band of companions, she takes to the road - the Silk Road - that storied collection of routes that link the silks of Cathay, the spices of the Indies and the jewels of the Indus to the markets of the west. But first she must survive treachery and betrayal on a road beset by thieves, fanatics, and warlords.
