  • In his most personal novel to date, internationally best-selling author Paulo Coelho returns with a remarkable journey of self-discovery. Like the main character in his much-beloved The Alchemist, Paulo is facing a grave crisis of faith. As he seeks a path of spiritual renewal and growth, he decides to begin again: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the landscapes around him. Setting off to Africa, and then to Europe and Asia via the Trans-Siberian Railway, he initiates a journey to revitalise his energy and passion. Even so, he never expects to meet Hilal. A gifted young violinist, she is the woman Paulo loved five hundred years before--and the woman he betrayed in an act of cowardice so far-reaching that it prevents him from finding real happiness in this life. Together they will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, traveling a path that teaches love, forgiveness, and the courage to overcome life's inevitable challenges. Beautiful and inspiring, Aleph invites us to consider the meaning of our own personal journeys: Are we where we want to be, doing what we want to do? -- Amazon.com

Summary
'The search for peace has its price, and I ask myself: just how far am I prepared to go?' In 2006, Paulo embarked on a Trans-Siberian pilgrimage across the terrain of his readership as he sought to reconnect with his waning spirituality. Joined by Hilal, a determined and enigmatic young girl with a compelling history, and a reluctant entourage of publishers, translators and assistants, Paulo experiences an unexpected divine awakening, the Aleph, with Hilal. The girl who seemed to be merely another over-enthusiastic Paulo devotee is the catalyst that banishes his ennui and a girl with whom he has shared a previous life and from whom he must seek forgiveness. Paulo must banish pride to order to gain emancipation from the shackles of his own isolation, apathy and guilt, allowing happiness and desire to burst back into his life.
