“The Buddha Sat Right Here” by Dena Moes

(NAPSI)—Author Dena Moes felt trapped on the “hamster wheel of working motherhood,” no longer believing that bigger material possessions cause greater happiness. So in 2014 she tore off her Supermom cape, shuttered the house, and took her husband and preteen daughters on an eight-month odyssey through India and Nepal. 

Her family left their California life of carpools and Cal skate, and traveled by bus, train and elephant. They met the Dalai Lama, hugged Amma the Divine Mother and visited the tree where the Buddha sat.

This unforgettable adventure will open your heart, crack you up, and may even change the way you engage in family life and spiritual seeking. Purchase at http://bit.ly/36XjlbM.

“Desert Burial” by Brian Littlefair

American geologist Ty Campbell is on the periphery of the Sahara’s internecine warfare in Mali, trying to forget his murdered wife. When Lila, an aid worker on the verge of emotional collapse, leads a convoy of African refugees into the Mali badlands, Ty’s hermitage is shattered. Attempting to save the refugees, Ty and Lila make a Faustian pact with Bud van Sickle—the smiling face of a powerful multinational corporation—who is competing for the lucrative privilege of ridding the planet of nuclear waste. His solution? Bury it beneath the land claimed by the refugees.

“Desert Burial” probes the human connections that mock our illusion of a world under our control—and reveals how those connections ultimately redeem us. From Dunn Books, purchase at https://amzn.to/385e6XT.
