Read full description of the books:
Snowfed Waters is a moving and uplifting story set amidst the Himalayas. It is a tale of two cultures, of false assumptions and of the gradual dawning of self awareness.
Sonia Swayne’s life is in bits. With her self esteem at rock bottom she decides to flee England - and go to work for a charity in Nepal. The more Sonia learns about her hosts’ customs, spirituality and spontaneity, the more she re-examines her own values. Then, when disaster strikes, she musters resources and courage she’d forgotten she’d ever had.
This is a fictional sequel to "A Glimpse of Eternal Snows" by the author of "Lemurs of the Lost World".
"... in her observation of Nepali culture -- she is careful to avoid a patronising 'them and us' perspective. Couple her sensitive approach with a dramatically unfolding plot and breezy, easy style, and readers clamouring for more since the release of her first Nepal book, are bound to be satisfied."
Saumya Balsari author of "The Cambridge Curry Club" & "Summer of Blue"
"In a confrontation with another culture that becomes more life-enhancing and a land more life-threatening than anything she has ever experienced before, Sonia's overwhelming problems back in England gradually become trifling. Nepal's unfamiliar culture and Nature itself carry the tale like the river that becomes so important in Sonia's alteration from victim into healer. Five voices weave together strands of cultural confusion to create a rich tapestry of greater humanity, and deftly draws one into minds with very different perspectives."
Amy Corzine author of "The Secret Life of the Universe" etc

Read information about the authorAs a child Jane dreamed of intrepid adventures and encounters with exotic wildlife but it wasn’t until she was 22 and with a zoology degree to her credit that she started travelling: she organised a six-month expedition to catalogue the creatures living in Himalayan caves. To cut a very long story short, this trip lead to a parasitology then medical qualification, a husband and many more exotic trips. She experienced leeches, malaria mosquitoes, ticks and scorpions first hand and, realising how good information contributes to enjoyable travel, wrote her first travel health guide, Bugs Bites & Bowels, now in its fifth edition. Her first book was a travel narrative, Lemurs of the Lost World. So far, eight of her books have been books published.
Dr Jane has lived in various very remote corners of the globe and has spent about 11 years in South Asia. Jane’s third son made his first big trip – to Nepal – at the age of three weeks. Her experiences of living in rural Nepal proved a rich resource for her writing as her travel biography, first novel and adventure stories for children bear witness.
She practised as a general practitioner / family physician for 15 years in Cambridgeshire but in September 2017 moved back to Nepal. She has more letters after her name than in it and teaches extensively on travel health including an annual commitment to a workshop on diarrhoea at the University of Cambridge medical school. She has written a double spread feature for Wanderlust magazine since it was first launched in 1993 and her words have been published in national newspapers and the academic press.
She tweets as @longdropdoc, her Nepal photos are on Instagram @wilson.howarth and her blogs are on her author website www.wilson-howarth.com where there are photogalleries relating to her books.
