In the year 1311, in the highest tower of Cloud of Sparrows Castle, a beautiful woman sits by the window, watching as enemies gather below. As she calmly awaits her fate, she begins to write, carefully setting down on a scroll an extraordinary tale—a tale that unfolds in Autumn Bridge. With the same emotional power that distinguished Cloud of Sparrows, readers will travel from the storm-tossed shores of medieval Japan to the bustling streets of San Francisco—toward and overwhelming revelation linking past, present, and future.

    " Well, duh. Now I know why I was confused. This is a sequel. Guess I should have read the first book. I really enjoyed this one, however, but was confused sometimes about what century I was in. Maybe with the background of "Cloud of Sparrows" it would have been easier to understand. I loved the characters and the story. It's so different from what I've been reading. "

    " It is interesting how people react differently to books, just like people. When I finished "Autumn Bridge" I felt as if someone had just died. There was a moment during which I actually felt empty and wanted to grieve. I felt the same way after reading "Cloud of Sparrows", yet when I started to read this, its sequel, I remembered very little of that story... it came back to me in visions, like personal memories. There will be people who will read both books and wonder what all the fuss is about... I can't answer that, how the books affected me is a personal thing and could well be linked to the numerous facets that make up my interests and maybe in the sentimentality (I've chosen a word harsh critics might use) that runs through the stories. "Autumn Bridge" is suffused with a beautiful idea; it is about love and fate and about a period in Japan's history that was as difficult as giving birth (the quite rapid change from a static, almost mediaeval society to a modern, industrial power). When you know the outcome how do you behave? When all is frozen how can things flow? "

    " ya ampun ! ini salah satu novel horor kalo menurut saya. siapa nyana? ternyata jembatan musim gugur merupakan salah satu perkamen yang ditulis lady shizuka? si penyihir yang malah merupakan nenek moyang klan okumichi? dan sampainya emily selesai membaca perkamen itu, yeaah, tintanya menghapus dan akhirnya, menghilang secara misterius. dan ramalannya akhirnya benar, emily melahirkan anak Lord Genji ! dan yang mengejutkan, Heiko ternyata juga hamil anak Genji ! tapi baik emily dan heiko meninggal setelah melahirkan. aku gak suka ama nasib heiko, pffftt, dan pas antusias banget sama Makoto stark, si putra heiko-genji, tapi apa yang terjadi? hhh, kenapa meninggal? tokoh favorit ku akhirnya meninggal semua. apanya yang akhir indah? tapi masih pengin tau, genji gimana entar meninggalnya. di buku ini baru foreword? ampun deh, Takashi matsuoka keren sekali. #serem banget pas baca masa kecil lady shizuka ! apapun-akhirnya, saya yang penakut -antihorror, tapi akhirnya berani nyelesain baca ini novel #saya nggak ngerti dulunya kalo ceritanya rada seremm "

    " Thought I would really enjoy this book about feudal Japan (including the opening of it up to the West)but I was wrong. Took me forever to finish. Part of the problem was the constant switch between the centuries and the characters, including one character who appears throughout (characterised as either a witch or a seer). Have not yet read this author's first novel, Cloud of Sparrows, which has gotten much better reviews. "
