From the Author
I would rather live seeking my own dream and fail everyday, than to live one day pursuing someone else's dream, for which I carry no faith. ~VH~
From the Inside Flap
In the end we are either loved or we are not. No matter what one has done it is never too late to press the soles of ones feet back toward a path of rightness, of goodness and of forgiveness. ~VH
From the Back Cover
When I began Malaika, the author because a seemingly mental projectionist. The skill of his writing played a gripping movie in my mind. The ending brought me to tears and proved to me that despite the growing cynicism of our society and my own sometimes jaded view it is love or it is lack of love that makes a story worth reading. Van skillfully captures love and grips your heart in this page turning story. A must read! T. Miller

very alive kitty--Abigail.
