Whisper of the Lotus

The story of a young woman’s journey to Cambodia and how she finds adventure, intrigue, and magic after an encounter with a mysterious stranger on a plane.

Whisper of the Lotus is a multi-layered story full of memorable characters and the sights and senses of a magical country. It takes readers into a land of golden temples, orange-clad monks, and kind-hearted people, where you’ll discover that no matter how far you travel, the path will always lead you back to yourself.

From the book:

“She looked toward the Visa On Arrival counter. Most of the people in the queue were loaded down with enormous backpacks and there was not a single elderly man among them. Perhaps he’d be at baggage claim.
A buzz sounded from inside her handbag, so she stopped and fumbled for the mobile phone she’d switched on after landing. Surely nobody would be contacting her here. Her fingers curled around it and she flipped open the case and checked the message.
Welcome to Cambodia, Charlotte. You have 57 days.”

What readers say:

“The writing had the feel of a good Armistead Maupin novel mixed with the spiritual overtones of Dan Millman’s Way of the Peaceful Warrior… much like binge watching a favorite Netflix show – I didn’t want to stop.”

Tuk-tuk driver SomOn and the author.

“Whether you believe in co-incidence, signs, the universe, all of the above, or none of them, this book will leave you questioning them all… an ‘on the edge of your seat’ read.”

“It’s a character-driven page-turner that leaves you with lots to think about – an exploration of the mysteries and questions that lie at the heart of our relationships, and of life itself.”

“Yetter’s story is mystery, romance, and thriller all in one, and the tendrils of an unexpected encounter weave through them all… Read this book, and be in awe of this talented writer.”

“In these COVID-constrained times, “The Whisper of the Lotus” offers an escape from the mundane. It’s worth the trip.”

From its release date on November 9, which is also Independence Day in Cambodia, and for 57 days, all proceeds of book sales are going to Justice and Soul Foundation, an organization run by our friend Matthew Fairfax that provides occupational training to young men and women rescued from trafficking in Cambodia.
