  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne | 1/18/2014

    " The story of three generations of a Tibetan family takes them from indigenous life in Tibet to city life in Switzerland. First hand descriptions of how idyllic though primitive life was in Tibet and the painful existence of Tibetan refugees in India. Even though most of the events in this book took place many years ago, the plight of the Tibetan refugee has not changed much. "

    " Enjoyed learning about life in pre-China Tibet and more about Buddhist beliefs and rituals. The story line about the grandmother/nun and her daughter (the writer's grandmother and mother, but the last part about the writer's life was less interesting. Definitely worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darcey | 1/2/2014

    " Whilst it's interesting, it's clearly written by an amateur & so it seems slow at times, even repetitive. The 1st book I've read on Tibet though, so revealing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy Shey | 12/27/2013

    " So good! Very informative and an amazing story. Learned a lot about Tibetan and Budhist culture. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth-Ann | 12/19/2013

    " Interesting but frustrating! The author makes so many generalizations about the culture of "old Tibet" (before the Chinese invasion) but then seems to contradict them both in her recounting of the Tibetan response to the Chinese invasion and in her own family history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joelegrand LeGrand | 12/10/2013

    " Great memoir about Tibetan Buddhists who fled Chineses communism. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynnea | 12/10/2013

    " This book was an amazing story of hardship and triumph. It is really a heartwarming story about a family who went through a lot together and never gave up! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Catherine | 4/28/2013

    " This was a fairly fascinating book, except it didn't hold my attention so well as to inspire me to actually finish it. I'm not sure why. Perhaps another time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 7/20/2012

    " A riveting book about the indomitable spirit of three women but most especially that of Yangsom's grandmother., Kunsang. Kunsang's life gives us an insight into the destruction of the Tibetan way of life under Chinese rule and the subsequent search for cultural and religious freedom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara Garvin | 4/7/2012

    " This is a beautiful book about the importance of culture and family history, about strong women, about the terrors of a dictatorship, and about peaceful protest, human kindness, and intercultural support. A very heartfelt and personal story by a talented, thoughtful author. Enjoyed every page. "
