Early one January morning in 1928, a young mother is busy with her children when a stranger appears at her gate with a special gift. With instructions to nurture a lotus for forty days, the holy man informs the mother that she will bear one more child-a daughter who will be the spirit of her life and whose arms will enfold her in death. Nine months later, Anese Majid Khan enters the world into an aristocratic family in a subcontinent of India. This is her story. In The One That Got Away: The Truth Revealed, Khan shares the details of her incredible journey as she shuns a life of royal luxury and leisure and tirelessly dedicates herself to a life of global service. As she provides a revealing glimpse into the trials and tribulations that led her on an eventual path to world prominence as a scholar, writer, and founder of a school, Khan offers an inspirational message to others to persevere and, most importantly, to believe in themselves while seeking their own destinies. The One That Got Away: The Truth Revealed shares the fascinating story of how one woman built an amazing legacy during her relentless search for the truth.
