This is one of those books that take you to another place in that magical way that stays with you after you've finished reading it. It's probably why I'm addicted to reading.

Sky Burial by Xinran is a profoundly spiritual book, telling the story of one woman’s journey through the country of Tibet, searching for her missing husband and how she does eventually find some of the answers she was looking for as well as an inner peace and acceptance. .
