An enjoyable read. I felt drawn into the characters and the events they experienced. I always enjoy the bonus of seeing the world through the eyes of writers from other countries. I found the writing not as beautiful as that of Gail Tsukiyama ( Women of the Silk) ............. but perhaps that is the translation effect.

Don't read any spoiler material ~~~~~~~~~~~~and just enjoy the unfolding of the petals......

I rate this: A dish from a foreign country that intrigues your pallet, and then leaves you with a warm and satisfying feeling - and wondering if there is any desert to be found.
