Lisa Napoli was in the grip of a mid-life crisis when a chance encounter lead her to the adventure of a lifetime. Leaving behind her job in public radio and her life in Los Angeles, she moved to the tiny Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to volunteer at the country's first youth radio station. Along the way, she finds the world is a beautiful and complicated place, and learns to appreciate life in a way she never imagined. Find out more about the book on the author's website.
