The Fifth Dimension
About the Book
The protagonist, Meera, emigrates from India to Canada as a newlywed. Unfortunately, her husband dies within a few months. Her dear friend, Jane, commits suicide soon after. To fulfill her last wishes, Meera adopts her illegitimate son, Rishi.
Jane's ruthless and wicked mother, Helena, has Rishi in an immoral and convoluted web of deceit. Rishi grows into a conflicted adolescent partly because of racism he experiences at school and partly due to Helena's indoctrination against his mother. Rishi leaves Meera in spite of the sacrifices she made for him, refusing a marriage proposal twice.
The protagonist is a highly moral and compassionate human who refuses to compromise her essence. Constantly striving to preserve some semblance of beauty and truth in her turbulent life, Meera's story is about sacrifice, struggle and survival, decrepitude and triumph, and pain and transcendence by the Spirit, the fifth dimension.
