The Vietnam War polarized Americans. In the wake of political and military decisions, over 56,000 American lives were lost with 300,000 wounded. Over 1.5 million Vietnamese died. U.S. use of napalm, conventional bombing and Agent Orange defoliant ruined one-third of South Vietnam's land area. Applying Cold War technology and precision, the U.S. bombs dropped on North Vietnam, South Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia amounted to 8-million tons, four times the total tonnage of bombs dropped during all of World War II. Despite this effort, "victory" did not occur against a Third World adversary... Indra's Net is not a war story. A novel set against the backdrop of history and spanning four generations, Indra's Net shares the lives of two families from disparate cultures and societies. A story of family triumphs, grave losses, struggle and, ultimately, reconciliation, the novel's defining characters each play a role in this process. Set in the rural American West and Asia, Indra's Net shares the unfolding chronicle of a steadfast American family. Homesteading at Carson Valley, Nevada, in the 1800s, the Sterns family helps build community and a successful family ranching operation. The Pacific War against Japan brings Pete Sterns on a military assignment to Indo-China. These events forever change the Sterns' relationship to Vietnam. At the peak of America's military involvement at Vietnam, Pete and Sarah's oldest son, Mike, enlists in the Army and is soon sent to fight afield in Southeast Asia. The outcome of Mike's experience and a strong sense of family encourage Sarah to bridge cultures and overcome the impact of war and hostility, eventually reconciling and binding two families. InBuddhism, Indra's Net describes a series of mirrors that, when positioned correctly, present a view of the whole universe. This also provides a foundation for belief in the interconnectedness of all beings.

Pada era media sosial seperti sekarang ini, mungkin kita mengira bahwa tak ada lagi orang yang terlalu takut untuk berbicara. Semua pendapat yang ada di pikiran kita bebas diutarakan secara terbuka. Akan tetapi, tidak demikian kenyataannya. Masih banyak orang-orang yang takut berpendapat karena khawatir di-bully. Dianggap musuh karena pendapat dan keyakinannya berbeda dari masyarakat kebanyakan. Ada pula yang takut bicara karena khawatir suaranya tak didengar, tenggelam oleh riuhnya pembicaraan lain yang dianggap lebih penting. Dari situ, saya kemudian sadar bahwa orang-orang masih ragu bersuara karena belum banyak orang yang bersedia "mendengarkan". Mendengarkan dengan hatinya dan membuang jauh-jauh perasaan menyingkirkan ketidaksepahaman. Oleh karena itu, melalui suara-suara saya dalam buku ini, saya mengajak kalian untuk meningkatkan keberanian. Cobalah untuk berani berbicara. Cobalah untuk berani menerima perbedaan dan memahaminya. Setelah itu, mari kita belajar untuk menjadi juru bicara yang bermartabat bagi bangsa Indonesia.

Sins of the past could destroy all of their futures . . . For generations, Quentin Marsh’s family has seen its share of tragedy, though he remains skeptical that their misfortunes are tied to a centuries-old curse. But to placate his pregnant sister, Quentin makes the pilgrimage to Point Pleasant, West Virginia, hoping to learn more about the brutal murder of a Shawnee chief in the 1700s. Did one of the Marsh ancestors have a hand in killing the chief —the man who cursed the town with his dying breath? While historian Sarah Sherman doesn’t believe in curses either, she’s compelled to use her knowledge of Point Pleasant to uncover the long-buried truth. The river town has had its own share of catastrophes, many tied to the legendary Mothman, the winged creature said to haunt the woods. But Quentin’s arrival soon reveals that she may have more of a stake than she realized. It seems that she and Quentin possess eerily similar family heirlooms. And the deeper the two of them dig into the past, the more their search enrages the ancient mystical forces surrounding Point Pleasant. As chaos and destruction start to befall residents, can they beat the clock to break the curse before the Mothman takes his ultimate revenge? . . .
