“An affecting bildungsroman grounded in principles of emotional intelligence.” – KIRKUS REVIEW
Bijoy is a young boy in a remote Bangladeshi village where the legacy of hardship is passed from generation to generation.
But a distinct dream has been handed to this little soul by his father. His tiny heart embraces the dream without knowing the price he will endure for this vision. Inevitably, every triumph comes with a price. But Bijoy didn’t accept this cost as a choice; he followed it as it was the only means to escape.
When every door closes, Bijoy and his mother must embark on the unknown. At every turn, Bijoy is both aided and puzzled by the mysterious plots of destiny.
Where will this hostile journey steer Bijoy? What is adversity striving to profess?
Spanning two continents and several decades, Bijoy’s dramatic journey captivates the reader through each twist and turn as he deals with poverty, danger, oppression, unusual breakthroughs, and love, and gains precious wisdom on life along the way.
Ultimately, his greatest struggle is an existential one: finding peace with the hand life dealt him.
