Hermitage Among The Clouds

An Historical Novel of Fourteenth Century Vietnam

Hermitage Among the Clouds tells the story of the fourteenth century Princess Amazing Jewel, the daughter of one of Vietnam’s greatest historical Zen master kings. This beautifully written story expresses the suffering caused by war and conflict, the transformative potential of a commitment to practicing peace and building reconciliation, and the simple beauty of a spiritual life. Thich Nhat Hanh gives us a window into Vietnam’s past and at the same time, offers compelling insights about contemporary Southeast Asia and the world.
