Lobbi's move from Iceland to a charming, remote monastery in the mountains of an unnamed European country becomes a journey of self-discovery when the estranged mother of his child appears with his daughter. He gradually finds a suitable rhythm to his life, tending the monastery's famed rose garden and tenuously exploring his new relationships. This is a perfect read for Seattle's Fall weather, with a mixture of introspection, cozy pleasures, and a hint of ennui.
