From back cover:
“After backpacking her way around India, Sarah Macdonald decides she hates the country with a passion. When a beggar at the airport reads her palm and insists she will one day return – and for love – she screams “Never!” and gives the country, and him, the finger.
But eleven years later, the prophecy comes true. When the love of Sarah’s life is posted to India, she quits her dream job as a national radio presenter to follow him to the most polluted city on earth, New Delhi. It seems like the ultimate sacrifice for love and it almost kills her – literally.
One dank, smoggy night, a naked sadhu smeared in human ashes curses Sarah and she falls dangerously ill with double pneumonia. She defeats death, but not before facing some serious questions about her own fragile mortality and inner spiritual void, not to mention some unsightly hair loss.
It’s enough to drive a rapidly balding atheist to drastic action – in this case a wild journey of discovery though India in search of the meaning of life and death. And with the help of the Dalai Lama, a goddess of healing hugs and a couple of Bollywood stars – among many, many others – Sarah discovers a hell of a lot more.”
