About the Book

A family is torn apart when the husband decides to change his lifestyle and live by newly found beliefs. His wife and family attempt to dissuade him but to no avail. He is determined to walk away from his present life and sets out to find inner peace, thus starting a long soul-searching journey, bringing him back to the point of departure. However, the outcome of this decision takes a dangerous turn along the way. This is a story of how love, hatred, and the eternal search for perfection can, in some instances, end with disastrous consequences. This fiction takes place in today’s society with its mingling of culture, beliefs, and social class diversity. “Love and hatred are not blind, but are blinded by the fire they themselves carry with them” (Friedrich Nietzsche).
