Hidden Religion – A Novel

November 9, 2018

 

What is stronger? A man’s beliefs or his survival instinct?

When the rational gives you a death sentence, the irrational becomes your best friend.

When Alnor Loro, a 25-year-old, learns that he has a terminal illness, no amount of brightness of the day can stop his world from falling apart. Desperation and hopelessness force him to make the only decision he believes right – leave everything and everyone he has ever known behind and spend his last years on a long vacation in England.

As chance would have it, he won’t be going through this journey alone, after all. Befriending a mysterious girl, who undermines his reasoning, makes him second-guess the actual fatality of his illness and question everything he has ever believed (or has never believed) in.

Upon hearing about a special place and a hidden religion that can bring about his full recovery, Alnor is increasingly convinced that this girl is far from sane. Nevertheless, since there is nothing left to lose, Alnor lets curiosity (and hope, perhaps?) get the better of him and finds himself on a spiritual journey during which everything seems to be possible.

What is the right way when there is no way?

Torn between the world he once knew and the one he is discovering, both firm disbelief and inexplicable faith assail his mind and soul. With the great mental strengths he discovers to have, maybe, just maybe, following instructions of this religion will lead him to a full recovery.

REVIEW

Will Alnor be cured or is he merely deluded?

Author Sharon Golan weaves a metaphysical tale of fantasy and magic with intriguing twists and turns that will easily captivate the reader’s attention from the beginning. The author paints an imaginative story of faith and survival in a very vivid and convincing way. In addition, the characters are drawn with great credibility and conviction. It’s a relatively fast-paced novel that will keep you engaged from the first page to the last.

The book description gives a sneak preview: ‘When Alnor Loro, a 25-year-old, learns that he has a terminal illness, no amount of brightness of the day can stop his world from falling apart.

Hidden Religion had every element a good story should have. An exciting plot, attention to detail, but best of all fleshed out, well-written and well-rounded character development. There’s an abundance of well-illustrated scenes that make you feel like you are right there in the story, and that’s something I really look for in a good book.

This captivating and commendable work had me immersed from the beginning. The story flows from scene to scene with ease, and the author shows exceptional skill when it comes to storytelling. There are attention-grabbing moments in this page turner that will take the reader on a fascinating journey!

It’s one of those stories that come along once in a while that makes you want to read it non-stop until you get to the end. I’m giving nothing further away here. And this, I hope, will only add to the mystery and enjoyment for the reader!

I’ll certainly be looking forward to reading more from Sharon Golan in the future. I would definitely recommend this book. Five stars from me.
