Isabel Losada is a writer in search of a cause. She finds it in Tibet, ‘the greatest lost cause on the planet’, according to some. In finding Tibet, she hints to the readers that she finds something of herself.
The world Losada surveys from her London street is in turmoil. The Middle East is breaking up and is streaming into Europe, stoking old fears of race and religion. The war on terror is roaring ahead, sparking flames of angry revenge in the streets of Europe and America. Terror and the war on terror are badly rocking the boat of the tenuous world order.[Source]
