I loved this book. I am not a religious person, but I do believe in Karma. This book teaches us a few lessons without "brow beating" a view. You can take your own personal revelations away from this book. The story is beautiful and well written. The descriptions of both India and Montana are amazing, and the connection with any of the characters is easily done - whether you are a parent who feels like they are losing a child emotionally, a sibling who has to stand by feeling helpless or somebody who is going through a personal tragedy and sees no way out.
