Description de l’éditeur
Rapture, or Heaven, is one of the 10 worlds in the Buddhist belief system. Rapture sounds great, but it is actually one of the lower six worlds - because it's only temporary happiness. True happiness is steady and eternal. Rapture is the rush you get from a good meal, an "attaboy" at work, a smile from someone you're romantically interested in.
Meet Peter Blanton, a young man with a traumatic past. His inner beast is an orangutan. His beast carefully monitors his growth and development. He tries mightily to help his human to grow up straight and true. But Peter becomes bent on revenge when he discovers what happened to him when he was a child - a baby, really.
Plus, his orangutan can do nothing but watch helplessly as Peter is attracted to the flash and bling of Rapture, rather than any other aspect of his nature that would be more noble, more enduring. Peter is fortunate to have a counselor, Elizabeth Eggers, who works diligently to help him deal with issues born of his trauma.
Together, they travel to the place where Peter's abuse occurred, in an effort to exorcise his demons. They get a lot more than they bargained for.
