I liked this book. Ethel goes to an ashram when she's concerned about her daughter Debra's choice of spiritual teacher and focus of study. Ethel goes to meet Debra's guru, wanting to help Debra out of what she considers a strange situation. Anandaji is the guru there, and Ethel is drawn in most reluctantly by his teachings. In going to the ashram and hearing the guru's teachings, she may just get to have a stronger relationship with her loved ones.
I won this from Goodreads. Ethel is a 70 plus New Yorker who goes with her daughter to an ashram because she is worried. So they went to the Ashram in the Catskills. She thinks she will find something wrong but instead she likes the Zen teaching herself. So the mother and daughter learn to accept each other better. Good read.
