Waiting on Wednesday: Spirit's Princess by Esther M. Friesner

Spirit's Princess by Esther M. Friesner (Published by Random House, April 24, 2012)

Himiko, the beloved daughter of a chieftain in third century Japan, has always been special. The day she was born there was a devastating earthquake, and the tribe's shamaness had an amazing vision revealing the young girl's future—one day this privledged child will be the spiritual and tribal leader over all of the tribes. Book One revolves around the events of Himiko's early teen years—her shaman lessons, friendships, contact with other tribes, and journey to save her family after a series of tragic events. Once again, Esther Friesner masterfully weaves together history, myth, and mysticism in a tale of a princess whose path is far from traditional.

This sounds like a great topic for a historical novel. I have never heard of Himiko before but it sounds like she had a very interesting life.
