The Path of Dreams

The Path of Dreams is a theological comedy of manners arising out of the traditional Japanese practice of the arranged marriage. The matchmakers in this case are an Osaka samurai academic and a Scottish Mormon polygamist. The union these two 19th century raconteurs plot for their 21st century great-great grandchildren--Elaine Chieko Packard and Connor McKenzie--is one their descendants could never have anticipated, for this o-miai exists only on "the path of dreams."

Extended excerpts from the novel, an illustrated glossary, a map of the BYU campus, a discussion about the Song of Solomon and the poems of Ono no Komachi can be found at the website.
