Summary

Nestled in a hidden valley, Lágrimas is the last stop for a host of eccentric and questionable souls. When Joyce arrives looking for her son on a tip from a hitchhiker who claims to have seen him there, she settles in a bit too quickly for the locals' comfort. Much to her crushing disappointment, the boy she's been led to is not her son, but an emotionally battered teenager who communicates solely through lines from The Tempest. The locals, suspicious of Joyce's intent, believe that she has brought with her the forces of the Owl, a devastating storm that threatens to demolish Lágrimas once every decade.  Like a storm, the histories of Joyce and all of Lágrimas' inhabitants come raining down over the course of this riveting novel. Emotionally wrought and ultimately redeeming, Ordinary Monsters is a remarkable story about the sorrow of loss and the gift of healing.

    "Patience is the ornament of the brave," Eknath Easwaran’s wise grandmother used to say. In all relationships, Easwaran says, patience is the mark of love. An experienced spiritual teacher, he gives powerful insights and advice for developing patience at home and at work, with his unique blend of humor and practicality. Stories offer quiet interludes throughout this little book. Anecdotes about animals, sports stars, and happy family outings make these short, varied readings as entertaining as they are instructive. Gentle reminiscences of India, tales from Easwaran’s Hindu heritage, and inspiration from the world’s saints lift the reader’s spirits and give courage. Just keep trying, Easwaran says, and you’ll find there’s no end to your patience — no end to the wisdom, love, and compassion in your heart. This book makes a thoughtful gift for anyone seeking a life that is kinder, more stable, and serene.
