We're continuing to celebrate women's history month with fiction by women over 40. Join us as we talk with Elsie Sze author of The Heart of Buddha as she invites us to journey through Bhutan, an enchanting kingdom in South Asia that has only recently caught the world's attention. Elsie's story is a tale of mystery, adventure and romance, while recounting the two sisters’ physical and spiritual journeys to reach each other and find their true selves. Elsie grew up in Hong Kong, and currently lives in Toronto with her husband Michael. They have three sons, Benjamin, Samuel and Timothy. On March 28, 2009, she became a first-time grandmother when Michael (Misha) was born to Ben and his wife Inessa. A former teacher and librarian, she is an avid traveler, often to remote places which form the settings for her stories. Her first novel, Hui Gui: a Chinese story, was nominated for Foreword Magazine's Fiction Book of the Year Award, 2006. Her second novel, The Heart of the Buddha, was published in October, 2009.
