About The Book

Dear Prophet - A Woman's Story is larina's story and her reflections on imponderable existential questions, "the meaning of a woman's life and the meaning of meaning". Through the letters she writes to the founder of her religion, the Prophet Mohammed, the panorama of this Muslim woman's life and that of her young son, Hamid, is revealed. While she searches for her missing son, larina's letters and narration describe a convoluted chain of events that move from India to Germany, Lebanon and the United States, ending up in Colorado, where Hamid undergoes the transformation, which changes everything in their lives. The intrigue and terror that grip larina's and Hamid's comfortable lives intensify with each turn of a screw wielded by an invisible hand, ending in a remarkable set of events.

About The Author

Ali Ansari's first work of fiction is drawn form his familiarity with places, cultures and experiences described in the book that made him write it with sensitivity and understanding of a womam's struggle to find her place in a shrinking, multicultural world. Ali's narration of the story touches on his own attempt to make sense of human relationships, love attachment and detachment and the human mind a need for ultimate release in a final silence.

Professor of Mechanical Engineering in the U.S as well as in India and the founder of "Englineers Without Borders - India", Ali's first book sufism And Beyond Sufi Thought in The Light of Late Twentieth Century Science did Very well. Ali is an Indo-American Writer, Who now lives in Coibatore India
