In the historic Indian town of Agra, you can find a very unusual tour company, which is owned by a charming young man named Raj. Although Raj’s official job is to show off the historical landmarks of Agra, including the legendary Taj-Mahal, his true mission is to heal the souls of his broken “birds,” as he affectionately refers to his tour participants. His business operates purely upon word-of-mouth referrals, ensuring that all of his tour members arrive in Agra with their hearts in their hands, ready for the spiritual growth and cleansing that Raj is known to provide. Healing the hearts of the spiritually damaged can be a difficult job, and in this particular tale, Raj finds himself faced with his most challenging tour group yet. First, there is Ira, a stunningly gorgeous but fragile young woman on the brink of suicide. Next, we meet Darci and Lennard, a couple on the verge of divorce. Then there is Carl, an irritable, antisocial workaholic who has burned all of his bridges. Lastly, we meet Asha, an elderly widow who still yearns for the company and comfort of her late husband. When disaster strikes the tour group, everything is thrown into jeopardy, including lives, relationships, and Raj’s very reputation as a tour guide. Raj must find a way to lift the spirits of these five special travelers, even in the face of death and despair. Venture into the unknown and discover how Raj Touristry heals the brokenhearted, one soul at a time.
Voyagers into the Unknown is a story of self discovery. Raj, the owner of a tourist firm also helps in healing the troubled souls. Thus, when five foreigners come to Agra for a visit, little do they know that their lives are going to unburden them.
The beginning of the story reflects on each characters’ background and their story in a nutshell. Where Ira is in search of true love, Darci and Leonard are deep in love with broken hearts. Carl hopes in solving his issues in life and Asha comes in to have a fun trip.
It is a fast paced story which deals with many of life’s issues and human mind- it’s fragility and frivolous nature. The concept is refreshing and the author has beautifully weaved all the six stories together helping the reader to ponder over life and its ups and downs. The regret and the emotional baggage, the life that is lost and the destroyed hope, the broken relationships and the incurable hurts..and the beautiful bonds of friendships and companionship- the story is a definite emotional treat.
Kudos to the author for a great theme. The language used is simple and apart from some repetitive usage of words and phrases and few minor editing errors, the book is a delightful read.
