THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE is a gripping tale of tragedy, triumph, and transformation. It spans the turbulent period in world history from 1925 to 1967 with particular emphasis on the Tibetan Holocaust and the Vietnam War. The central character, Tenzin, is a young Tibetan monk of exceptional promise. When the Chinese invade Tibet and approach his monastery, Tenzin's superiors order him to flee. He is instructed to cross the Himalayas and make his way to Delhi where an airplane ticket to Los Angeles is waiting for him at the American embassy. Months later, he arrives in America exhausted, his robe in tatters. Alone in a strange country and unaware of the fate of his family and fellow monks, he learns that everyone he loves has been executed by the Chinese. Plunged into a deep grief that would crush a lesser person, he claws his way out of his despair to become a beacon of hope, compassion, and wisdom in his adopted land.
THE SILENT STEPS OF GRACE is more than an engrossing story. It is also a spiritual guide for overcoming life's challenges. It will provide you with hope, courage, inspiration, and a method to handle the difficult tests that life brings everyone, without exception. You won't want to be without it.
