Paeti Gustav Xaviers’ The Sound of Serenity is an autobiography crafted to read like a very interesting novel, a rare find indeed. From the early days of life, from building a friendship with a Jewish boy, to being considered a junkie, and through restlessness to finally finding peace in God, the author lifts the veil and reveals a broken person seeking healing and redemption. As the author struggles to find answers to her illness and abuse, she is startled to discover that beyond our human brokenness, beyond our fears, beyond our vulnerable fragility, there is the voice of God who calls us to union with Him.
Xaviers writes with elegance, a prose that is as simple as the inner voice she’s sought to hear over the years. It’s a beautiful story simply told, a story that will find resonance in many souls. And this could be the story of each of us, because in the heart of her story is the one thing that animates every soul: the quest for redemption. Told in the first person point of view, the story will draw readers in, making them feel like they are part of the story. The Sound of Serenity will make readers remember their own battle and feel encouraged that at the end of the dark tunnel there is light, and that beneath our brokenness there is a child of purity. This is a story of hope and redemption, a story that communicates the wonderful news that we can always find answers to the questions that baffle our minds, that there is peace when we finally come home to God. Xaviers' journey towards healing is a tale that will inspire millions, a highly recommended autobiography.
