Staff Reviews

A beautiful, zen-inspired movel. Rose, a 40-year-old Parisian botanist, is summoned to Kyoto for the reading of the will of her Japanese art dealer father, whom she never knew, yet he loved her from afar. His assistant is charged with taking Rose on a four day tour of Buddhist sites, gardens, and restaurants before the will is read, leading her to experience the contradictions and melancholy of Japan, and finally, reconcilliation and joy. Poetic, romantic, and a delight to read.
