Advance praise for Lost in Translation:
"Lost in Translation is an adventurous and romantic tale of a complex American woman in an exotic landscape. A remarkable first novel."
–Dominick Dunne, bestselling author of Another City, Not My Own
"Nicole Mones takes you on an enthralling, sensuous journey through China that leads deep into the hidden chambers of the human heart."
–Beth Henley, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Crimes of the Heart
"A complex portrait of a woman in search of herself . . . that reveals as much about character and cultural differences as it does about a search for priceless, long-lost fossils. Mones succeeds in integrating archeological history, spiritual philosophy and cultural dislocation into a tale of identity on many levels."
—Publishers Weekly, starred review
