Summary

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.

Beautifully written and inspiring

wow ... I read the book and then listened to the audio. The author had me captured with both. This is so beautifully written in that I am the little girl, the young woman and grown up. I felt I moved with her all the way through. The spiritual guidance and how Ruth became her true authentic strong self is simply inspiring.
