But when her mother dies, Tsomo suddenly feels called to travel and sets off toward a faraway village to light ritual butter lamps in her mother’s memory. Her travels take her to distant places, across Bhutan and into India, evolving into a major life journey. As she faces the world alone, Tsomo slowly begins to find herself, growing as a person and as a woman.

Set amidst the pristine beauty of the tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan, the story follows the footsteps of Dondup, a handsome young government officer stationed in a rural outpost. But instead of reveling in the dignity of his position, Dondup has attitude. Rather than embracing the kindness and generosity of his village neighbors or appreciating the beauty of his surroundings he’s far more excited about picking apples in the USA . He is convinced that leaving Bhutan for the western world will satisfy all that he craves. When opportunity knocks, it comes with a deadline. Dondup seizes the moment.
