With humor and wisdom born of a life lived with empathy and humanism, Merullo imagines a scenario where The Pope and The Dalai Lama attempt to disguise their famous personages and take a break from global fame to contemplate the real nature of their mission. Part madcap caper and part spiritual retreat, the novel addresses important issues while showing the “all too human” side of these illustrious religious leader. Characters from the “Breakfast With Buddha” trilogy make an appearance bringing this author’s theme full circle. ~ Reviewed by Karen Frank
