From Discontent

The Biography of a Mystic

A novel about becoming a Bahá'í in the 1970s.

Adam's mother had always maintained that her first-born was a difficult child right from the start. If he wasn't moving, he wasn't happy. . . he was a discontent. Adam was born a son amongst the blessed upon the earth. But he could not abide the blessing until he understood it and felt himself worthy.

The United States, melting pot of the world - or cauldron? For Adam, growing up there in the 1960s and 70s, the heat was fierce, and he had to go through the middle of it - the excesses, the rootlessness and alienation of his generation. But all the time Adam was trying to understand the world and his place in it. And when he becomes a member of the Bahá'í Faith, he discovers that this is 'not the end and conclusion of the great yearning. It is only the first step'.
