ASHES FOR THE ELEPHANT GOD
Reincarnation love story set in India
by Vijaya Schartz
Two lovers, murdered in a previous life, meet again in this life, in India, where their murderess awaits...
To scatter her brother's ashes over the Narmada River, Fabienne leaves France for the mysterious India of her childhood dreams. As she awakens to a newfound spirituality, unexpected visions of a former life during the Raj stir ancient yearnings for a long lost passion. Mukunda, the palace architect Fabienne loved a century and a half ago, lives again as an American engineer and works on the local dam project. As Fabienne falls in love again with India and the man of her destiny, the tapestry of her previous life unfolds. But, in the karmic land of the blue gods, a ruthless foe lies in wait. The Kali worshiper, who murdered the two lovers in a faraway past, has come back through the centuries to thwart their dream once more.

I lived in India for many months in the same conditions as my heroine and this is my tribute to the India I once knew. This unique reincarnation story could only take place in that colorful setting. If you like exotic settings and mind-provoking or metaphysical ideas, and especially if you like things Indian, you'll love Ashes for the Elephant God.
