Shivani Rai is a 25 year old Indian American woman who has it all: a successful career as a recruiter in Silicon Valley, loving family, raucous best friend, and doting investment banker fiancé.
But when her father’s sudden stroke devastates the family, Shivani’s entire world crumbles. Her “workaholic” fiancé cheats with Miss Lavender Panties from his office. Her family’s business starts failing miserably. And her ultra-conservative, spinster aunt moves in with a mission to wreak havoc on Shivani’s life.
As she sifts through this wreckage, she feels broken. A 25 year old woman who feels 40 until she meets a free-spirited 40 year old man…Alan Nicolaisen, a Type 1 diabetic high school teacher. With his help, she learns to overcome her fears and take chances. Hike a mountain with a racy dress clinging to her body. Eat spaghetti squash. Prank call her ex fiancé and swear at him (Okay, maybe not the smartest move!). Start a nonprofit for children’s education. And laugh and love.
Enchanted Silence is about opening your heart and living life in the best way possible, even in difficult circumstances, embracing every moment, and ultimately following the enchanted silence of your soul.
