Author(s): Paulo Coelho
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.
Aleph is an encounter with our fears and our sins.
A search for love and forgiveness, and the courage to confront the inevitable challenges of life .
Each end gives us the opportunity for a rebirth.
Aleph marks a return to Paulo Coelho′s beginnings. Facing a grave crisis of faith, and seeking a path of spiritual renewal and growth, Paulo decides to start over: to travel, to experiment, to reconnect with people and the world. On this journey through Europe, Africa and Asia, he will again meet Hilal - the woman he loved 500 years before - an encounter that will initiate a mystical voyage through time and space, through past and present, in search of himself.
What you do in the present will change the future.
Paulo Coelho is the author of The Alchemist, The Pilgrimage, The Valkyries, Brida, Veronika Decides to Die, Eleven Minutes, The Zahir, The Witch of Portobello and The Winner Stands Alone, among others.
