Hotel Himalaya: Three Travel Romances is a collection of tales about emotional connections between strangers who meet far from home. Each story contains a search, a loss, a love and an epiphany.
“Hotel Himalaya” begins with a chance encounter on a bus in Southeast Asia and leads to a whirlwind affair that sweeps the globe from Moscow to Kathmandu. But years later, the man who loved Anneke Wicklund finds his memories of her are strangely malleable…and changing all the time.
In “Wacken,” Daria, a heavy metal fan traveling to Germany for the greatest rock festival of all time, meets the mysterious and handsome András, with whom she can barely communicate. Amidst mud, beer, loud guitars and 70,000 metal fans, the romance that blossoms between them is at once deliciously sweet and strangely anguishing.
“Mountain of Shadows” finds two strangers by random chance hiking the same Western trail to a fabled grotto of haunted Anasazi ruins. As each discovers the other’s deep wounds and vulnerabilities, the common thread between their broken hearts may bind them closer together than they realize.
