What can a poor man do when his kidneys stop working? Thi is one man's solution

Heng Lee is a goatherd in the remote mountains north-east of Chiang Rai in northern Thailand, very close to the border with Laos. It is a tight-knit community where everyone knows one another.

Heng gets sick all of a sudden, but not too sick to take the goats out, until one day he has to go to see the local shaman, because he has started fainting.

There are no medical doctors in the vicinity and the Shaman has been good enough for most people for centuries.

The Shaman takes some specimens and comes to the conclusion that Heng’s kidneys have stopped functioning and so has little time left to live.

The battle is on to save Heng’s life, but there are other forces at work too.

What will become of Heng, his family and the rest of the community, if he takes the Shaman’s advice?

Author Owen Jones, from Barry, South Wales, came to writing novels relatively recently, although he has been writing all his adult life. He has lived and worked in several countries and travelled in many, many more.
He speaks, or has spoken, seven languages fluently and is currently learning Thai, since he lives in Thailand with his Thai wife of ten years.
\"It has never taken me long to learn a language,\" he says, \"but Thai bears no relationship to any other language I have ever studied before.\"
When asked about his style of writing, he said, \"I\'m a Celt, and we are Romantic. I believe in reincarnation and lots more besides in that vein. Those beliefs, like \'Do unto another...\', and \'What goes round comes around\', Fate and Karma are central to my life, so they are reflected in my work\'.
His first novel, \'Daddy\'s Hobby\' from the series \'Behind The Smile: The Story of Lek, a Bar Girl in Pattaya\' has been followed by six sequels, but his largest collection is \'The Megan Series\', twenty-three novellettes on the psychic development of a young teenage girl, the subtitle of which, \'A Spirit Guide, A Ghost Tiger and One Scary Mother!\' sums them up nicely.
As Owen puts it:
\'Born in the Land of Song, living in the Land of Smiles\'.
