A most entertaining read. This book has a bit of everything to keep you reading. I truly enjoyed it. Allen seems to really know his subject. I understand that he is a minister and has been to India many times and that gives his setting and subject authority. He includes humor, a bit of sex, tragedy, philosophy, religion, patriotism and finally a bit of mystery. He has the ability to make all his characters real and believable. I'd call it enjoyable, believable reality reading.. I'd enjoy a sequel.

Ray Allen¿s, ¿Light From the East¿ is fiction, non-fiction, travel log, and life commentary blended beautifully. The novel exemplifies the spirit of a Southwest Virginia pastor with real human characteristics and life issues. The characters leap from the pages and stir the imagination. You can tell the travels to India were well researched. I felt, at times, as if I were looking at the landscape and into the characters eyes with the author. In the spirit of ¿Father Tim¿ in Jan Karon¿s Mitford Series you will love the young preacher. He will make you chuckle one moment and the next you will find yourself probing some hard issues of faith. This is a delightful read.
