The Sweet Requiem


Dolkar escaped from Tibet to Delhi with her father eighteen years ago, making a perilous trek across the Himalayas that ended in tragedy. She suppressed all recollection of that traumatic incident. But when she unexpectedly encounters Gompo, the guide who abandoned them during their journey, memories are reignited and she is propelled on an obsessive search for retribution and closure.
