Guesthouse For Ganesha (eBook)
de Judith Teitelman
Sobre o livro
In 1923, seventeen-year-old Esther Grünspan arrives in Köln with a hardened heart as her sole luggage. Thus she begins a twenty-two-year journey, woven against the backdrops of the European Holocaust and the Hindu Kali Yuga (the Age of Darkness when human civilization degenerates spiritually), in search of a place of sanctuary. Throughout her travails, using cunning and shrewdness, Esther relies on her masterful tailoring skills to help mask her heritage, navigate war-torn Europe, and emigrate to India.
Esthers traveling companion and the novels narrator is Ganesha, the elephant-headed Hindu God worshipped by millions for his abilities to destroy obstacles, bestow wishes, and avenge evils. Impressed by Esthers fortitude and relentless determination, born of her deepthough unconsciousunderstanding of the meaning and purpose of love, Ganesha, with compassion, insight, and poetry, chooses to highlight her story because he recognizes it is all of our storiesfor truth resides at the essence of its telling.
Weaving Eastern beliefs and perspectives with Western realities and pragmatism,Guesthouse for Ganesha is a tale of love, loss, and spirit reclaimed.
