Once in a great while, I am delighted to discover a story that inspires me on many levels. This book is such a tale, for it speaks to men and women alike of the indomitable human spirit, of the quest to realize our highest spiritual potential. Teren Hanz has given us a riveting portrait of the life of one Indian-born girl of the late 1950s (Maya), and yet her portrayal reveals much about Indian culture at large and about the millions of young women reared in the newly independent nation of India. This account of Maya's life is also a brilliant piece of writing as entertainment. Its rich and enjoyable blend of humor, insight, and bathos brought me in turns to laugh aloud, to cheer the brave Maya onward through her tribulations, and to grin wryly at the juxtapositions of life that are herein framed and spotlighted in some of the most splendid language I have ever read. But the bulk of the book artfully relates the inner journey of this inspiring and determined spiritual seeker who finds her way then dedicates herself to helping others of her community in many ways. Maya is a fascinating, uplifting account of one woman's brave journey to self-reliance, to self-actualization, and ultimately, to selflessness. I shall carry its valuable lessons with me always. (These are excerpts from my Foreword to the book that I submit now in hearty recommendation of a great read. Enjoy.) Dusk Weaver

Wow what a read. This was recommended to me by a friend as a great read, one of those that you can’t put down as you have to know what new twist this extraordinary woman's life is going to take. What I was most left with is her incredible spirit and strength of character a real inspiration to anybody but particularly to anyone in an adverse relationship with no apparent way out.
