I was disappointed in the ending of this book - the tale is rich in character, and I really enjoyed the descriptions of the rugs, being the textile head I am, and there was no way not to appreciate Usman, in his awkward life, but the end was just so . . . tidy. I can't even really suggest another path that might have been more satisfying to me. Perhaps that is the difficulty in a character driven story - life goes on, even after the final sentence. That truth makes it hard to have a satisfying conclusion - Usman, Stella, Mrs. Roberts - no matter where the author left them, you know they have to get up in the morning, shower and eat and go about the day.
