Shiloh's Forever Family

Anand Verma is a recovering alcoholic, struggling to overcome his failure as a dutiful son, husband, and father. After being abandoned by his wife to raise his possibly illegitimate child, Anand's overbearing mother sends him to India to marry Sonia, a beautiful yet unhappy stranger whose heart belongs to another. 

Will Anand find his moral compass? Will he fulfill his vows? Or will he splinter his relationship with his new wife and innocent son by returning to the bottle? 

The Seven Vows is a poignant story of one man's journey to adhere to his cultural values and navigate the complexities of love in order to find redemption, purpose, and peace.
