Lisa Napoli was in the grip of a crisis, dissatisfied with her life and her work as a radio journalist. When a chance encounter with a handsome stranger presented her with an opportunity to move halfway around the world, Lisa left behind cosmopolitan Los Angeles for a new adventure in the ancient Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan—said to be one of the happiest places on earth.

A big THANK YOU to Nancy the BookFool who loaned me or gave me this book way back in May of 2011. I can now soon return it to her. This book will satisfy the country category for What’s in a Name 2016, is a book “in the house” and a loaner. Three happy checks right there.

  1. What an interesting book! I’ve always been kind of fascinated with that area of the world, but have read very few books that had that setting. Enjoy! Love the pictures! Happy New Year!!!

  2. I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of this one. My son works as an ESL teacher for Bhutanese senior refugees so I think he might enjoy this one as well.

  3. Let’s call it a “permanent loan”, shall we? 🙂 I enjoyed that book very much but it’s not one I’ll read, again, so please feel free to pass it on when you finish. I’m reading Simon’s latest for my first book of the year: Tales of Accidental Genius. I figured I can’t possibly get off to a bad start reading a Van Booy, right? I should maybe do that every year.

    Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
