Summary
Fleeing the messy dissolution of his marriage, cardiologist Peter Scanlon decides to move with his seventeen-year-old daughter to Kathmandu, where he will volunteer in a free health clinic. Once there, he finds that he failed to anticipate the hardships and dangers: austere living conditions; a chronic shortage of medical supplies; diseases he has never encountered before; the sexual trafficking of young girls; and political instability and an encroaching civil war. At the same time, his friendship and philosophical discussions with a Tibetan Buddhist lama challenge and invigorate Scanlon, and his contentious relationship with the Nepali nurse who works with him gives way to deeper feelings. But when Scanlon is summoned to the scene of an accident on Mt. Annapurna, their lives become a nightmare of violence and fear
Summary
Moving to violence-stricken Kathmandu with his teenage daughter during an ugly divorce, American cardiologist Peter Scanlon volunteers at a sparsely equipped humanitarian medical clinic while his daughter flourishes in a new culture marked by Tibetan Buddhism
