THE TRANSMIGRANT is an alternative, fictional take on the life of Jesus of Nazareth. Inspired both by ancient scriptures and relatively new findings, such as Russian traveler Nicolas Notovitch's 1894 book "The Unknown Life of Jesus Christ", THE TRANSMIGRANT explores Jesus' life during the years not mentioned in the Bible. It's a remarkable tale of self-discovery that explores the lost years of Jesus Christ, and a reflection on the lengths a man will go to be admired, accepted and, ultimately, loved. The year is AD 8. In the backwaters of Galilee, the twelve-year-old carpenter Yeshua nourishes an impossible dream-to become a rabbi. When a Buddhist pilgrim tells him about a country called Sindh, where anyone can be a monk, Yeshua's hope rekindles. He joins a camel caravan and sets off on a thousand mile journey across the Silk Road into the unknown. Guided by the words of the Buddha and Krishna, but crippled by a stubborn reluctance to obey rules, Yeshua stumbles from temple to temple in search for a place where he may finally teach.

kristi saare duarte ambitiously conjures the undocumented years of jesus’ life, before he became a historically transformative figure. the author’s knowledge of the period is remarkably astute, and she artfully concocts a less self-possessed jesus, still grasping for a sense of his life’s mission. she also delves into his youthful worldly longings, and the romantic experiences he has before his ministry, realistically fleshing out the possible details of his mortal life. saare duarte masterly traces the evolution of jesus’ thought, and the grand synthesis of religious traditions it culminates in: “i aim to remind my brother and sisters to love god and one another. because it’s what’s in your heart that makes you righteous or impure.”

a captivating and powerfully related account of jesus’ early years. 

Kirkus Reviews

 

the transmigrant is brilliant in its simplicity of style, an inspired narrative and vibrant living tapestry that humanizes jesus in a sensitive and delicate way, the likes of which we have not seen in religious literature since hermann hesse's tale of the buddha, siddhartha, or kahlil gibrann's the prophet. well-researched and backed up with an insightful closing note from the author, this exquisite book, like the long lost scrolls of russian explorer nicolas notovitch, places "yeshua" in india during the eighteen "missing years," offering a detailed alternative history for the open-minded reader.

kristi saare duarte's vivid narrative deploys the methods of fiction to get at a truth about jesus that history too often ignores.  by de-centering the geography of jesus' development, The Transmigrant uncovers the emotional substratum of religious genius.
