I really enjoyed all the characters in this story, each one is fleshed out with all the complexities that will have you either loving or hating them as they add to Eshaad life or try to destroy him.
Books set in other countries always interest me because you get to explore new worlds every time you open the book. This book is set in New Delhi, India. The author does a wonderful job of transforming you into the place through the pages. The details are rich and many but not to the point the details overwhelm and take away from the story.
Eshaan is the main character who struggles with his own set of issues from his childhood that he can't seem to find a way to let go. Eshaan feels responsible for his mothers death even though he was just a child. Eshaan's mother starved to death after Eshaan's father left them. Eshaan was taken in by a monk named Lama Dorje to live in the monastery after his mother died. Eshaan was so malnutrition himself it took months and months of Lama Dorje feeding him soup with a spoon constantly saying "this will help heal, your spirit and your heart will soon rejoice".
Eshaan has such a big heart for everyone in need. He opens Buddha's Karma Kitchen to help beggars on the street learn skills to cook and be able to get themselves out of poverty. Unfortunately Karma Kitchen became mostly a place for the beggars to get three free meals and not help with anything. The kitchen had a series of bad karma, it seems along with a lot of things in Eshaan's life but he always try's to find the good in the situations.
Intertwined in all this is also rich love story between Kitt and Eshaan. I won't give anything away but it keeps you rooting for true love until the very end.
This book is one you will be reading late into the night because you will not be able to put it down!
In the story, Eshaan, the main character, uses his past of growing up hungry to inspire his opening up a soup kitchen called Karma Kitchen. Here, he hopes to feel every hungry soul he can. Unfortunately, this plan doesn’t go too well at first. However, after having to go through the efforts of rebuilding his soup kitchen, Eshaan changes his perspective on work and self-pride in one’s accomplishments.
By the end of the book, I fell in love with Eshaan and all his naivety rooted in good intentions. There are so many wonderful lessons taught in this novel that everyone can learn from, as well!
