About the Author:

Martin John Goodman is a novelist and fine prose writer who has written articles for numerous magazines and newspapers, including The Los Angeles Times, The Scotsman, The Guardian, and The Financial Times. He has worked as an actor, teacher, and pianist. His first novel, On Bended Knees, was well reviewed in England and was short-listed for the Whitbread First Novel Award. He has traveled extensively, especially in Asia and Europe, and now divides his time between Santa Fe and the south of France.

From Booklist:

Goodman's spiritual link with Mother Meera, a contemporary Indian mystic who connects with her followers by means of her steady gaze and purportedly transformative touch, began long before meeting her in person. Goodman practiced transcendental meditation and traveled through Asia, visiting holy sites, but eventually sought a way beyond systems and communities, a path not predicated on woundedness but that promised wholeness. Encountering Meera at her German base of operations, he met others there on similar pilgrimages (including eventual life partner James) and found the capability within to expose the secret, hated parts of himself to the divine light. An insightful testimony from a onetime devotee of its putative subject, who, whether or not she is, as some contend, God on earth, remains a gifted seer and worth the attention of browsers of the spiritual fulfillment shelves.
