Description:

In 1931, four people, including Glory Conway, escape the political unrest in Baskul, China by boarding a plane, bound for Peshawar. The plane, however, much to their dismay, has been hijacked and eventually crash lands deep in the far reaches of the Tibetan Himalayas. Seeking shelter, the group soon finds themselves in the valley of the blue moon, guests at a lamasery, called Shangri-La.

Hilton’s story . . . transcends its medium, provoking deep, meaningful thought on spirituality, love and life’s purpose.--Arah-Lynda, Goodreads. [Suggest a different description.]
