The book uncovers the struggle of a woman and the strength needed of a person to live life and make life portrays that there is always a choice in life. Reading through the story made me realize how hard and unfortunate life can be for some people and reminds me to be thankful of all the fortunate things happening in my life.

If there is one-in-particular lesson to learn from this book, it is this; "When life knock us down we can either choose to mourn with morning sun or shine with morning sun." Yangki chose the later and better.

Those of us who think life is being tough on us must read Monu Tamang's heartbreaking yet rejuvenating tale of Sonam Yangki.

“The Morning Sun”, Monu Tamang’s third book is based on a true story. It is the life story of Sonam Yangki – her journey from being abandoned at birth to owning her own tourist lounge. When her grandmother takes Sonam in on a cold November night, the infant has no idea what lay ahead of her. Sonam is a brave girl who defies her fate and keeps fighting, living one day at a time, in a hope that tomorrow would bring a new light. But when the sun ultimately gets closer, it might scorch her with a bitter truth.
It took me just over two hours to complete this book – it was definitely a page turner. I wanted to know what happened next. I knew it was non-fiction, and I’d seen Sonam Yangki with her little Golu at the launch party for the book. That only made me more curious.
The book shows that Monu Tamang has grown as a writer. This book was well written and well edited. So a brownie point. I’d recommend this book to any Bhutanese who wants a two-hour break from your daily schedule.

The Morning Sun is a novel based on the true life story of the protagonist, Sonam Yangki. It shares us about the challenges faced by Sonam during her journey of life. She has successfully survived against all odds.
The story begins in the freezing winter morning where a baby was being abandoned by her young mother in an apple orchard. The young mother has taken this decision to avoid social stigma of carrying a fatherless child. The abandoned child was Sonam Yangki. She was fostered by her grandmother. The grandmother faced lot of difficulties to raise her. Sonam’s grandmother nurtures her and as Sonam grows, she has to face her fate. Even though Sonam has a stepfather, it is of no help as she was forced to work in pubs and drayang for the source of income. Later, Sonam gave birth to a child who has cerebral palsy.
The Morning Sun is all about facing hard times with determination and motivation, and hoping for a better tomorrow. It basically depicts about modern challenges; it also draws a picture of a society that is becoming largely uncaring.
This novel is an inspiration and motivational piece for all the women who are undergoing such hardship for their livelihood. The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
