"In this desperate tale of expatriates caught up in the Chinese occupation of Tibet, Jeanne Peterson captures the bitterness while keeping in touch with a more spiritual melancholy and a pulse of hope. One’s senses are flooded with tastes, smells and sounds that bring a very distant world and time to life."
Jonathan Falla, author of Blue Poppies
