If you are asking about the Mary Gentle book, then yes, it is pretty good. It's a cross between a historical romance (with explicit sex) and a fantasy, with a fairly complex plot that takes the main character from France to England, then Japan, then back to England. I had to look up a few words, mainly because I'm not familiar with the mediaeval names for parts of swords, clothing, and armour, but I'm not sure I'd have missed much if I hadn't bothered.
