The Lodging for the Rose
The novel is fiction, but its logic is not. When being forced to flee ‘paradise’ the protagonists start a new life in China out of reach to the West. But China isn’t the Golden Shore of Peace where they find tranquility and rest. The Principle of Universal Love widens the challenge for them, the challenge to uplift the world. They do not flinch, nor do they say "we cannot go further."
China unfolds its heart as one of the few countries in the world that still embraces the principle of progress. It sees boundless horizons and reaches for them.
The light of universal love that once shone brightly in Europe and later in America, but has dimmed in those places, still glows brightly in China. It may reawaken in us all and become the hope of the world as China’s gift to humanity, even while the protagonists uplift China. -
The novel presented here in preliminary edition is Episode 8 of the epic series of novels, The Lodging for the Rose.
