Praise

“Chronicling her realisations about the path to happiness and her unexpected enlightenment along the way, it’s an incredibly entertaining memoir that will have you laughing out loud from the first page.”
Soul & Spirit 

“At its core, Married to Bhutan is a romance; it’s the true story of Linda Leaming’s love affair with both her Bhutanese husband and with Bhutan itself. Leaming, from America, visited the Buddhist nation of Bhutan for the first time when she was thirty-nine. It would be ‘a nice diversion,’ the travel agent had told her. But as soon as that first trip was over, Leaming was devising ways to return. The country was to become, not a diversion, but her life-a life full of hilarious linguistic bumbling, a flexible sense of time, and a sharp awareness of impermanence. ‘In the West, it is possible to live and be asleep,’ she writes. ‘In Bhutan one is compelled to wake up.’ Leaming’s husband is a renowned thangka painter and I very much enjoyed the intimate look at his artistic process.”
Shambhala Sun 

Married to Bhutan is wonderfully wise and endearing, much like the Himalayan kingdom that is its subject. Leaming’s graceful, witty prose captures the magic of Bhutan, a place where happiness is more than just a nice idea. It is a way of life.”
-Eric Weiner, author of The Geography of Bliss

“Paradise exists and it can be found within the pages of this book, which provides a delightful and charming trek through the happiest, most beautiful, and serene place on earth: Bhutan. A must-read for all those who know that the best journeys take place in multiple dimensions simultaneously.”
-Arielle Ford, author of The Soulmate Secret 

“After reading this book, I wanted to marry Bhutan-and Linda Leaming…. In the end, her book is about openness and love and how they are expressed in the caring actions of ordinary Bhutanese people. Linda shows us the beauty of Bhutan and expresses a tenderness toward her earthy in-laws that inspires me to open my own heart more and helps me realize that we are all bigger and more capable of love and adventure than we can imagine.”
-Cyndi Lee, Founder, OM yoga
