    " The beginning was slow, but things picked up towards the middle. I did enjoy the ending. Everthing came full circle wihtout being too neat about it. The temae (tea ceremony) as described was very interesting although I kept thinking of the tea ceremony in Karate Kid. :) This did make me want to experience the real temae as a fascinating aspect of Japanese culture.

    " I'm lost. Over 100 pages in, I've completely lost the story line. No amount of effort has helped me make heads or tails of the plot and characters. How disappointing! "

    " I really wanted to like this book, and could admire some lovely writing. However, it left me cold. I couldn't become interested in the people. The tea ceremony is fascinating, but I truly couldn't tell you much about it. I needed a glossary of Japanese words in the back, and a list of characters, and even a family tree would have helped keep the different people straight. If it hadn't been a book club book, I would have probably given up after 100 page, but I persisted. Our group was divided with those who found it interesting and well written, and two others, like me, who were really bored with it. "
