"In Pursuit of Love, Spirituality and Happiness" captures the essence of true love between two people, their conflicts, astonishing and amazing romances and the relentless pull of day-to-day problem living in a corrupt situation. In this novel the romance is fantastically fulfilling, the spirituality moves deeply, and the surrounding mystic and mythical nature create an astounding magical imagination.  it also takes a compelling look at religions, spirituality and cultures of India, USA and Hawaii and draws unique inspirations from Christianity, Buddhism and Hinduism into the plotline, emphasizing the age-old adage "money can't buy happiness." This book is an enchanting blueprint of romantic love with an interconnected happiness and spirituality.

Jonathan is a young American, born to wealth and privilege and trying to escape his father's corrupt ways by escaping to Hawaii. There he meets Oliana, a native beautiful Hawaiian student and falls in love. But when his family calls him home, he is torn between his newfound love and his loyalty to his mainland family.

This book takes reader beyond this physical world, makes them escape to an enthralling world where they can travel to a mythical land where Oliana dances in the rim of the volcano to please her Volcano Goddess Pele. It sends reader to imagine a beauty of simpler life, romantic love, love at first sight, sacrifice for real love and most of all happiness and then brings them back to reality of cold world, corruption, selfishness, ethical quandary etc.  It is a tale of epic and romantic love, set against true-to-life background of corporate greed, ethical quandary and spiritual and religious diversity and achieving ultimate happiness.
