"I am fascinated and haunted by Elizabeth Enslin's story. It will stay with you and won't let you go." Luis Alberto Urrea, bestselling author of Into the Beautiful North and The Hummingbird's Daughter

Love and marriage brought American anthropologist Elizabeth Enslin to a world she never planned to make her own: a life among Brahman inlaws in a remote village in the plains of Nepal. As she faced the challenges of married life, birth, and childrearing in a foreign culture, she discovered as much about human resilience, and the capacity for courage, as she did about herself.
While the Gods Were Sleeping: A Journey Through Love and Rebellion in Nepal tells a compelling story of a woman transformed in intimate and unexpected ways. Set against the backdrop of increasing political turmoil in Nepal, Enslin's story takes us deep into the lives of local women as they claim their rightful place in societyand make their voices heard.
