The haunting memoir of a girl growing up in the Moso country in the Himalayas — a unique matrilineal society. But even in this land of women, familial tension is eternal. Namu is a strong-willed daughter, and conflicts between her and her rebellious mother lead her to break the taboo that holds the Moso world together — she leaves her mother’s house.
