The Book

A spell-binding reimagining of The Tibetan Book of the Dead, one of the world’s most influential and treasured spiritual texts, Portier’s novel explores our deepest questions about life, love, and death.


Anne and Evan are on the vacation they’ve always dreamed of, travelling deep into Tibet, when a dreadful accident sends them down a wholly different path. What happens next is a story of acceptance, a cathartic journey where minds are opened to the possibility that this life we know is not the only one and death is not the only end.


Evoking inspirational classics such as The Alchemist and Jonathan Livingston Seagull, THIS FLAWLESS PLACE BETWEEN is storytelling at its most uplifting and enriching, weaving a tale that will transform the way we see this world and our place in it.
