“Reading the early pages of this rich, romantic, lushly descriptive memoir of Zeppa’s three years in the tiny Buddhist kingdom just south of Tibet, I counted my cushy American blessings…But by the end, I not only got why Zeppa stayed in Bhutan… I actually envied her experience. Her tale is part love story, part history lesson and part Buddhism 101…Zeppa writes romantically without romanticizing, and her fascinating story is something you’ll marvel at the first time and want to go back to again and again.” —Mademoiselle

“Heartfelt…a good reminder that your passport, both literally and figuratively, can open up an entire world of possibilities.” —Harper’s Bazaar

“Zeppa’s story sheds the customary contours of the year-abroad memoir and starts to become something more like a memoir of conversion, a testament of newfound faith.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A joy to read.” —Chicago Tribune
