Fans of Thich Nhat Hanh's Peace is Every Step and Anger, and Deepak Chopra's Buddha, will appreciate Hanh's wisdom and storytelling in his novel The Novice, which contains universal themes that transcend all boundaries of faith, creed, country, and era.

Through the parable of a young woman who stays true to herself and her faith in the face of adversity, Vietnamese Zen Buddhist master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh enables readers to embark on their own path of introspection and self-discovery.

With his trademark insight, Hanh presents a path to greater awareness of the means to manifest peace both inside oneself and in the world at large.

This is an inspiring story that leaves the reader asking plenty of questions about the world and our places in it.

This was a great book about a Vietnamese story. It really was inspiring for me. It speaks about the injustices of the world, and how we should be loving and compassionate.
