A Dream Immortal
Seven Tales from Seven Realms of The Spirit
About the Book
An Hindu prince soon to be a slave, a mysterious stranger with magical powers, a prideful monk abandoned in a deserted monastery, a successful Chinese famer accused of murder, the son of a Zen priest living in rural Kansas, an old man obsessed with trees gradually slipping into dementia, the child star of a local television show who thinks she’s a duck—what could they possibly have in common? A heart, a soul, and a vision of themselves that lead them to a destiny beyond their imagination.
