Noon Chai Escape
American expat Grant Lockette is held hostage by terrorists in Kashmir. His brother, Simon, learns of it shortly before a scheduled visit to India. Against the wishes of his father Charles, Simon ventures to rescue Grant with the help of his friend, Drew Kasper, a breezy neo-hippy along for the adventure. Grant's faith is tested as he prays to love his captors rather than hate them. One of Grant's assailants, Yusef, has visitations from heaven in his dreams and becomes curious about Grant's interpretations. Stateside, Mr. Lockette works with a negotiator to bring his boys safely home from what becomes a massive departure from anything predictable. Outside Grant's hotel-prison, Simon and Kasper find a rich new world, one that existed seemingly only in the media until now-Islam. While living with the Muslim family that had hosted Grant previously, Simon & Kasper encounter hospitality & friendship. In NCE a loving Allah trumps assumptions, challenging readers from multiple backgrounds & perspectives.
