5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!, 9 Feb 2014
This review is from: Snowfed Waters: a prescription for depression (Kindle Edition)
Exciting page-turner set in Nepal that drew me into the scenes with wonderful descriptions of the country and the people - felt like I was really there. Engaging and thrilling plot. Loved it and can't wait for Jane's next book.

This book is one of those that is impossible to put down. Part travel, part adventure, the richness of vocabulary and the constant shift in perspective gripped my attention . It will appeal to a wide audience.

Most women will appreciate this book. It is an insight into Nepal. Into ourselves also! It is factual and not romanticized.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read, 18 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snowfed Waters (Paperback)
Snowfed Waters is a great read. It is an engaging love story; at times a fast-moving thriller; a thoughtful account of cultures that are baffling to one another; and a vividly detailed and observant travel book - all in one. It movingly tells the story of a troubled and outspoken young woman, Sonia, who travels to Nepal in search of distraction and finds healing instead. I defy defy any reader not to fall in love with the teenage local girl, Moti, a wonderful creation. There is a good ending too, not entirely predictable but absolutely right. Victor Watson.

5.0 out of 5 stars A different perspective on life, 16 April 2014
This review is from: Snowfed Waters (Paperback)
Running away from the failures of her marriage and career in England, and the constant criticism of her unsympathetic mother, Sonia flees to Nepal and finds herself in a country of breathtaking natural beauty, populated by crocodiles and snakes and a people who, from a European perspective, seem somehow to be, at the same time, both courteous and callous.

Told from the points of view of Sonia and people she encounters on her pilgrimage, the story rattles along through a landscape of delight and cultural misunderstandings to an earth shattering climax which leads Sonia to realise that she is not, after all, a failure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who says adventure stories are only for boys?, 14 Mar 2014
This review is from: Snowfed Waters (Paperback)
This book is great fun and also educational. Tearing along at a pace that keeps us wondering what's going to happen next, it deftly offers insights into the very different ways that people of different cultures think.

Sonia escapes to Nepal only to find no escape from herself. In a confrontation with a culture that becomes more life-enhancing and a land more life-threatening than anything she has ever experienced before, her overwhelming problems back in England gradually diminish into trifling matters.

The story skilfully weaves a rich tapestry of Sonia's thoughts and perspectives regarding this unfamiliar country with those of the Nepali characters who encounter the strange English lady from Cambridge. We join her quest to retrace her ancestor's journey and to discover what symbolic meaning and power his mantra and amulet have. Its exhilarating crisis in which she faces the power of Nature to give and destroy life in an instant shakes Sonia out of her complacently depressed stupor and she finds out what she is made of.

Well worth a read - especially for all of us armchair travellers!
