The sharp, clear edges of the day were beginning to dim. A phalanx of clouds was advancing from the eastern peaks, not yet threatening, but a reminder that a perfect sunlit day in the midst of the rains should be accepted for what it was--a divine caprice. Mona Kittredge is a young American diplomat in a small Himalayan kingdom. Her circle includes her best friend Ted, the sensitive embassy doctor Jan, wife of a high-ranking diplomat Prabha, sister of both the exiled ruler and the current prime minister Tensin, leader of the Buddhist community and the charismatic, unhappily married Philip, the incoming U.S. ambassador. When Jans husband is sent to Washington for medical treatment, Monas talents are tapped for negotiations at the very highest level. She enjoys the challenge, but there are other things on her mind: she and Philip were well acquainted back in Turkey, and now that he has followed her to this posting, Mona must set the terms of their relationship. Meanwhile Ted and Prabha grow closer, and Prabhas relationship with her brother grows darkly complex. When two American children are kidnapped, Mona finds herself deep in the mountains, unravelling more mysteries than she knew existed. In this engrossing first novel by a Foreign Service veteran, politics intertwine with friendship and love for a thrilling yet deeply human saga.
