Fleeing post-Katrina New Orleans, haunted by the ruins of his marriage, a squandered inheritance, and the teaching job he inexplicably quit, Henry Garrett pulls into a small Virginia town after three days on the road, hoping to find peace and quiet as the only guest of the Ganesha Motel. But within a matter of hours, Henry finds himself at the heart of an accidental homicide. He is drawn into the lives of the victim’s relatives, even as the voices in his head that drove his father to suicide grow louder and louder.
Thanks to the kindness of strangers, his burgeoning friendship with Latangi, the widowed motel proprietor, and the discovery of a glorious and epic Indian love poem that has never seen the light of day, Henry is slowly pulled back from the brink to find redemption.
