Never Doubt That the Unending Love of a Father—or the Pure Faith of a Child—Can Change Lives

“His name is Ashish. His name is blessing. The boy is my blessing.”

Virat and Latha named their son Ashish, for he is the light and glory of their world. Yet a simple drink of water changes all their lives forever. For Virat, Latha, and Ashish are Untouchables, members of a caste who must never contaminate the world of the other, higher, castes.

When Ashish mistakenly drinks from the wrong cup, he’s badly beaten. Knowing that his son needs a doctor—which takes money—Virat ventures into the dangerous realm of the high caste. He begs Mammen Samuel Varghese, the wealthy landowner and Christian, for money. He receives the loan—along with a life of slavery for himself and his family.

But Mammen Samuel does not understand the strength of a father’s love, the power of a young British nurse who could not forget a boy named Blessing—or the faith of a child.

Re: The Faith of Ashish

Thank you for this review of my book. I love the way fiction intertwines with life, and allows us to see it in a new way. Thought you might be interested to know that the impetus for writing this trilogy (this is book 1) was the passioned request of a Dalit (Indian "Untouchable")activist's plea to let people in the West know of their plight. I will make my 8th trip to India this winter for a book debut.
