Lotus of the Lake
14,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

This book tackles one of the most pressing issues facing the world today-child poverty and what to do about it. In particular, it explores the lives of underprivileged and lower class children in India, peering into inherent societal inequalities. It is the world the author has observed firsthand both through her humanitarian work, extensive travel and her experience as the first Public Engagement Officer at an international NGO (Peace-Child India). She worked with slum communities, children's homes and migrant communities in Bangalore, India. Lotus of the Lake incorporates East-West perspectives on faith and poverty, points of view of the poverty stricken and their life experiences. So often, their thoughts, stories, dreams and desires are overlooked. These are the views the author highlights in her book--deep inner realities that only the poverty-stricken themselves can describe. Gill plans to build a safe, harmonious, and educational home for the poverty-stricken children in Southern India. She eventually hopes to catalyze the construction of such homes in every state within India, Africa and other developing countries such as, Haiti. The homes will act as safe havens for children-protecting them from abuse, poverty, malnutrition and neglect--offering them a world of education and hope.

Alice Sebold's The Lovely Bones meets Sarah Addison's Garden Spells in this striking southern debut featuring the ghost of a murdered cowgirl who guides her grief-stricken father and a disgraced former detective to her killer—and a long-hidden family secret. When disgraced police detective Jo Beth Dawson comes to town, she wants only to watch the rodeo and crawl into a bottle, not necessarily in that order. But when she stumbles upon the body of young rodeo star Pony Jones, Jo Beth feels an otherworldly connection with the dead woman—and an irresistible compulsion to find her killer. Pony herself, invisible to the eye but not to the sixth sense, guides her grief-stricken father, Titus, to Jo Beth's side. Jo Beth and Titus are unlikely partners—two wary, broken people who are quick to judge and slow to trust—and their pursuit of Pony's murderer unleashes a whirlwind of intense emotion and unexpected encounters. With every clue they uncover, dark family secrets are revealed, secrets that will tie the three of them closer than they could imagine. Featuring psychologically complex characters and a richly layered examination of family, grief, and redemption, The Tender Mercy of Roses is an immensely satisfying read.
