How much can the children of killers forgive, especially when the dead are family?
A young travel writer faces an impossible choice between avenging her brother’s murder or winning her mother’s approval. In India to search for a priceless scroll which could bring her fame, she finds her answer. This is the first fictionalized account of the incredible 1887 discovery of a Buddhist manuscript which places Jesus in India during his youth.
In the modern chaos and corruption of India, the travel writer lands in jail falsely accused of terrorism. Her Big Oil boyfriend and his powerful Indian family can spring her and smuggle her out of the country, but with a history as dark and violent as her own, she must first turn her back on hard-won liberal ideals. Even worse, it could destroy any chance of finding the precious scroll.
