In this book, you will find love, forgiveness, faith, imagination, as well as critical thinking. The book contains stories from many parts of the world and presents love and forgiveness that are found in all faiths and cultures. But if you are looking for pure love and forgiveness, then you won’t find them in this book; you will only find them in a mother’s heart. You will read the story of Carol, from Iowa, whose friends set her on a discovery mission to find out about Sufi . In her travels, she meets many people who wish her well, and these newly acquired friends are eager to enlighten her in the ways of the Sufi s … but first she must reveal her reasons for being who she is and why she had to come halfway around the world on her pilgrimage to peace and serenity.
Eli hides from life behind his beard and his beer. Not until he meets an ex-girlfriend who broke his heart many years before, does he really look at himself and his life. Her directness—“You look much older than your age …” and the memories she stirs up make him realize he has to change if he wants to be happy.
The book also focuses our attention on what really matters, which is our behavior towards other
people. What we believe or don’t believe is a matter of debate. But how we actually act? That makes a real difference in our lives and the lives of others.
