About the Book

Upon the deaths of her parents, Renee Riendeau hoped to refresh her soul with a pilgrimage to a world healers' conference in northern India.  Instead, she experienced hardships.  Yet at every turn of adversity, someone stepped into her life to help her, comfort her, rescue her.  Renee discovered "angels in India."

Three days after Renee arrived in India, she took a train to Jammu, a remote Kashmir region, near where the event was to be staged.  However, an international crisis developed.   A plane carrying Pakistan's president exploded and crashed.  All passengers were killed.  The Pakistanis suspected Indian involvement.  Rumors of riots and killings were rampant.

The conference was cancelled. The only other arrival was a Buddhist monk.

But while the twosome wandered through the Himalayas seeking conference organizers, it was their driver Mehraj, who served as Renee's guardian over treacherous mountain roads and through precarious military checkpoints.

Renee has a strong self-assurance as a result of her Indian pilgrimage, but she also has a stronger faith in prayer.  "I prayed without ceasing," she says.  "I know the power of prayer.  That's how I live my life now."
