The Mountain Is Young is set in Nepal in 1956. The protagonist, Anne Ford, is a writer whose husband is a retired colonial civil servant. She travels to Kathmandu after getting a job as an English teacher at a Girls Institute there. Then, she meets and falls in love with the engineer in charge of building the dam.
It is a story of rediscovering yourself after a long sleep of fitting in, boredom and misery. The reader of this story is inspired to discover the same self, become aware of the unseen rules of society and challenge the fact that they threaten to take away the joy of using our gifts and live our unique lives to the fullest, just as happens to lead character Anne when she awakens.
