Two people search for the meaning of life. They find more than they expect...

Gem's story - a spiritual journey

Gem is a girl who feels that everything in life has a deeper meaning, but she doesn't know how to find it. When she saves the life of a wandering monk, she asks him to be her teacher. He refuses. But he has no choice...

Gem and the monk have many adventures together, some dangerous, some humorous and all of them deeply spiritual. And who is teaching whom?
Together they find deep truths about life. First of all they learn that they can accept themselves as they are – their feelings, their shortcomings, their spiritual nature. 
Gem's story is a heartwarming novel about personal growth and two people's search for the infinite.

John Hunt Publishing will publish the book by the end of 2012.

Professional Reviews

An extraordinary feeling of peace - Kathy Williams, author of I Survived / Thorns of two Roses
"The most powerful, uplifting, and spiritual book I have ever had the pleasure of reading!
Gem's story touched my heart and soul, and gave me an extraordinary feeling of peace.
The author, Joost Boekhoven, has done a splendid job of touching the hearts of others,
and left me wanting more."

Kathy Williams, publisher;
author of I Survived / Thorns of two Roses

A spiritual love story without violence and sex - Francesca H. Kelly
"In this day and age of action, violence and sex in fiction and video, it's a blessed relief to read something that restores and inspires; that speaks to the soul.

Gem's Story is a timeless fable, a gentle lesson in finding God, and, yes, a love story—but not the usual sort of love story.

What the two main characters share is very special and rare, but the author imparts the hopeful message that we are all capable of this kind of spiritual love."

Francesca H. Kelly
Former Editor-in-Chief of the web magazine Tales from a Small Planet

Lessons in self-esteem and self-confidence - Amy Gault Anderson
"The spiritual dimension of the story is one that will appeal to readers of many faith backgrounds, Christian and non-Christian.

I read a quote that stated that once a person reads a book, it forever becomes a part of him, for good or for bad. Gem's story became a part of me for the positive!

Gem's lessons were very helpful to me. I found the lessons in self-esteem and self-confidence that Gem learned very touching."

Amy Gault Anderson, IN, USA
