A Child's Face a Forgotten Scent, or a distinctive flavour stirs memory and inspires longing for those trabsformative experiences in one's life. Ken Haigh brings us tantalizingly close to his own vision of longing for a time, a place, and a people when he revisits his two-year sojourn as a young school teacher in the remote Himalayan village of Khaling, Bhutan. Ken's memoir will leave you yearning for ancient Buddhist temples, winding mountain trails, and a simpler way of life; it will enchant the vicarious traveller in each of us.
