There is a need here for some copy editing - suddenly there will be some omissions of text or typos that don't make a lot of sense. Writing primarily for Kindle may make that happen more easily, but it detracts a bit from what is what a really strong book. This book weaves spirituality as it is being experienced today into the assumptions and life experiences that happen in America and so it allows a real understanding of how the spiritual underpinning can deepen life experience in a very natural way.
I am very interested in Buddhism, although of the less florid Theravada variety, so, many of the details of Mahayana Buddhism were new to me. I checked, and found Stephen Hazlett's account to be accurate. A very useful result of my having read this novel is that now I realize, the two versions differ only in outward trappings, not in the essence.
I don't normally read family dramas (and don't even own a TV), but I'm aware that this theme is very popular in both books and as shows and movies. This one is excellent, with the personalities very distinct, understandable and vividly presented. Although he was a minor character, I identified with thirteen-year-old Sam the most, and wished we'd entered his reality more.
The best part of it is the very last, with Jennie riding in a train. Don't read it first though -- it only makes sense as a very fitting finale.
