Shockingly enough, the very last book I finished, if you don't count audiobooks, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. It was an absolutely gorgeous book. Ravishing, even. The title character is a Dutch clerk in 1799 Japan when the book opens and meets a Japanese midwife with a scarred face. It is even better than it sounds and the writer really did his homework, as far as I can tell. There are a lot of "you are there" details in this book.
