Beyond The Known World
When 19 year old Eva fails to return home to New Zealand from India, her estranged parents, Carl and Julie, must reunite to find her. Their journey takes them from coastal Auckland, to the chaos of New Delhi, and on to idyllic Himalayan villages, where hash-smoking ex-pats are tight-lipped and local police offer little help.
Desperate to find Eva, Carl’s misreading of the local culture leads to a young woman being imprisoned. Old wounds and betrayals between husband, wife and daughter are exposed, and Carl begins to realize that he may be responsible for driving Eva away.
Believing Eva has died in the mountains, Carl despairs, but Julie’s refusal to stop searching eventually proves that sometimes blind faith is better than having none at all, and that to find their daughter these two people must first rediscover each other.
And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.
A daughter may outgrow your home, but she will never outgrow your heart.
Beyond The Known World is a story of destiny versus desire. Recently, and acrimoniously, separated Carl and Julie desperately desire to find their young daughter lost in the Himalayas. However their destiny holds something else for them – finding each other.
I love all great journeys because when we seek new worlds, true travels transform us. “Beyond The Known World
