Explores the timeless questions
It has been called a novel that "awakens the consciousness" and “immerses the reader in a sensory bath that is India.” The Ashram is a beautifully written story, which touches on the subjects of spirituality, grieving for the loss of a loved one, violence against woman and the journey of learning to love again. It will touch the heart of anyone reading it, no matter what culture or background you come from. It's powerful but not preachy, suspenseful yet romantic. Filled with action and adventure, it is also a story about finding oneself, as it explores the timeless questions about life and death. Written over a period of ten years as a labor of love for abused women and those who have lost and want to learn to love again, Sattar infuses his every being into this tale that you won‘t want to miss out on reading.
