For Josh, a troubled and lost young Londoner, falling out with his best friend and an emotional breakup with his girlfriend turn his whole world upside down. Only Sumesh, the master of his local Buddhist centre, can provide the answers he so badly craves…
In Sydney, too, all is not well. A close encounter with yet another casual fling very nearly puts Zoe’s life in danger, prompting her to seriously question her life’s direction and whether she can carry on living a lie.
The answer to their troubles seems to be the alluring and enigmatic Nepal. As Josh finds out about a temple reported to grant instant enlightenment to all who enter, he leaves his life in London behind without a second thought. Zoe, hounded by otherworldly visions, just as quickly heads for the Himalayas in search of revelation.
Yet all is not quite as it seems. As mysteries and long-hidden secrets are unravelled, will Josh and Zoe find the truth they are looking for? This is a coming-of-age action-adventure novel that explores a question so prevalent in our society today: what exactly IS happiness, and where do we look to find it?
I am a young British author living in Brighton, UK. I’ve been interested in writing from an early age, and have always loved writing poetry and short stories. Recently I decided to take on the challenge of writing a novel, and in May of this year it was finally ready! Apart from reading and writing, I’m interested in personal development, spiritual growth and foreign languages, and am currently in training to become an English-Russian interpreter.
