A Single Rose
From the best-selling author of The Elegance of the Hedgehog comes a story about a woman's journey to discover the father she never knew and a love she never thought possible.
Rose is called to Kyoto for the reading of her estranged father's will. Once there, she encounters acquaintances of her father--including a potter and poet, an old lady friend, his housekeeper and chauffeur, and Paul, her guide through Kyoto.
As the reading of the will gets closer, through her encounters and peregrinations in Kyoto, Rose reaches a poignant understanding of her father's love and an acceptance of loss.
