Book Recommendation - In Search of the Sun: One Woman’s Quest to Find Family in Japan

At 44, an American woman teaching yoga in Japan seeks to adopt—a story of triumphant love for families everywhere.


Californian Leza Lowitz is single and traveling the world, which suits her just fine. Coming of age in Berkeley, California, during the sexual and feminist revolutions of the 1970s, she learned that marriage and children could wait. Or could they?


She moves to Japan and meets the man of her dreams, who opens her heart in ways she never thought possible. Rather than struggle to fit in as an outsider far from home, she opens a yoga studio in Tokyo and makes a home for others. She visits India to work on herself and spends time back in California to deal with her past. But something is still missing until she returns to Japan to discover that when you give a little love to a child, you get the whole world in return.


This inspiring memoir reflects the author’s deep connection to yoga that allows her to realize that infertile does not mean inconceivable. Through teaching, meditation, and community, she transcends her struggles and embraces the joys of adoption and motherhood.
