Thoughts: I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened the pages of this book. At first I couldn't really make any sense of the Buddha and the rose, but after the first 75 pages that mystery was easily solved. This is the debut work of Walker and I think he did a pretty decent job. I'm not sure that he struck a chord with me as a female reader though. I found myself at times thinking the plot was a bit hokey and the characters very typical of this sort of storyline. I knew exactly how this story was going to end and nothing was a surprise..which I have to admit was a bit of a letdown. The description on the back mentions the word 'suspense' to describe this book....that is wrong. There wasn't anything suspenseful going on, in my humble opinion. In the end, I felt so-so about this one...I don't think it's horrible, but nor do I think it's one you need to run out and read immediately. Even with that said, I would give this author another try as I think he just needs time to find his voice!

Recommend? I would lend it to a friend without a problem, but I'm not sure that I would urge anyone to buy their own copy.
