Gabriel Walter has the makings of a materially comfortable life, but he lacks purpose inside. He ponders his past and wonders about the source of his unease. The worst thing is him lacking a sense of connection, he feels that we can never really know and love another person fully.

The thoughts and dreams that Gabriel faces grow more and more intense with each passing day. It is the message of purpose, excluded from the fabric of a relativistic world, but burning strongly within each individual. He comes to realise the necessity of God in the world, the unifying principle that has guided his life up to that point. This book is an instrument to freeing oneself of oppression that every human can wage, and a manifesto for self­ discovery.

This is a modern epic about the utter randomness but simultaneous prosaicness of modern life; and how to address the necessary but comforting tedium that civilization brings. The story is an anthem to spirituality in a materialistic age, counter to the assumption that the only values that matter are those that can be quantified.

The more that we estrange ourselves from our innate beliefs, the higher the price we pay.
