Another Heaven Blog Tour + Giveaway

 
My review
Tina packs her bags and heads to South India. She is going there to finish her thesis. She gets more than she bargains for when her first night in India is at a hostel. Tina is awaken to a girl pleading. Before Tina can make sense of the scene, some men come marching in and take the girl away. However not before the girl can pass a note to Tina. This one in encounter has now put a target on Tina's back.

Ok, this is one of the best books that I have read about the topic human trafficking. A very serious problem that needs to have more awareness and needs to stop. Instantly I was transported to South India. It was like I was stepping into Tina's shoes as if I was her. Being as smart as Tina was, she could have come off as standoffish but the author did it right and made Tina smart but with compassion. Usman is truly evil. It is people like Usman that we need to stop. Check out this book as it is worth your time.


About the Book:

 

Annu Subramanian's new novel, ANOTHER HEAVEN, exposes with unflinching honesty and deep psychological insight the twisted relationship between terrorism and human trafficking. ANOTHER HEAVEN may be difficult to digest in part, but its frankness and refusal to turn away from the unsparing horror of its terrible premise make the book an essential addition to the literature of terrorism and its links to international human trafficking.

Subramanian, a self-described "writer of conscience," employs her considerable literary skills in the service of shining a bright light on human rights abuses and terrorism. In her previous novel, WAITING FOR THE PERFECT DAWN, Subramanian focused on bringing awareness about the suppression of women and domestic violence.

Excerpt:

"When bound by religion, one cannot draw boundaries to the path to heaven."



"Stop hurling religion like a hunter throws raw meat to a beast. 

Before you enter the path to heaven, what about the hell you have

created for hundreds of men and women on this earth?  Which religion

would endorse your actions?"



"You live in a chasm between heaven and hell.  You and your whole

lot.  To me, there is nothing between heaven and hell.  And I can turn

that HELL into HEAVEN.  This is why I cannot leave religion alone.  It

is what makes me what I am."
