This book takes us to a time when Tibet was a land that truly belonged to the Tibetans.
In this first part of the book, the author vividly recounts instances that take place during her childhood and during the early part of her married life, with both can dour and charm. In particular, we see the life of a woman who was not part of the nobility, unlike most women from the nobility.
The second part of the book concentrates on the Regent Reting Rinpoche, her uncle. Here we are revealed intimate details of Reting Rinpoche, the person, and the much loved uncle. This entirely fresh perspective on the Regent is a welcome change from what has been written before about him.
