Great story about life in the expansive of the Tibetan plateau. The story of Shu Wen looking for her husband for 30 years was interesting enough, but I found real intrigue in the loss of her concept of time. Shu Wen lives with a generous nomadic family for so many years the days blend with the daily chores of living in harsh conditions. The idea of sky burial was new to me but a beautiful concept as is the the integration of Buddhism into the life of Tibetans.
