Imagine a love story where the girl doesn't get the boy (or the girl) and still lives happily ever after.... The trauma of abuse as a child. A hedonistic lifestyle in London and New York during the AIDS crisis. Sex and love. Addiction. Ecstasy. Despair. A skyrocketing international career that spirals out of control. And then, a chance encounter that changes everything.... Drawing on the ancient wisdom of the Lotus Sutra, Dragon King's Daughter is a 21st-century love story, a searingly honest memoir of addiction and recovery through a combination of 12-Step, intensive yoga, and Buddhist philosophy. It charts a journey of transformation from suffering to self-realization. It has a message for every woman and for every man, too. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ruth Phypers.
