The Same SkySal resonance The Same Sky will appeal to anyone with an interest in Southeast Asia and particularly to women who have experienced the exhilaration and vulnerability of solo travel It is the inspiring story of how a young woman at the lowest point of her life began to heal by facing the challenges of traveling alone and opening her heart to people across culture The author's descriptions analogies and insights of the countries she traveled to were very well done I was interested in her accounts because they were all places I hope to travel to She captured the people and their kindnesses to strangers the peacefulness of the monasteries and monks who live in them and the sad histories of Tibet and Laos I also found it interesting how foreigners reacted to and were confused by the author's Canadian Chinese looks I couldn't put this book down at first But somewhere past the middle I lost interest however it picked up again when the author traveled back to China then on to Cambodia I'm not sure if I got tired of reading about all the monasteries she visited or all the men she met Her story about her failed relationship with Chris and the lout he turned out to be was than enough The Same Sky was one of those books that resonated with me after I finished I looked up the author on her website to read where and how she ended up So glad to see that she found herself a new family and a happy life
