We know Dr. Mohinder Kaur Gill for her exception work on the consorts of the Guru - the enlightened women who served the Guru as their wives and partners.  This book is rare biography of an other kind - that of Bhai Jaita Singh.  This brave and solid Sikh traveled from Delhi to Anandpur Sahib, carrying the head of Guru Tegh Bahadur ji after his martyrdom at the hands of the mughal regime.  It was then that the 9-year old Guru Gobind Singh embraced Bhai Jaita and conferred on him the honor of "Guru's son" saying "Ranghretta Guru Ka Beta".

This book is the only biography of Bhai Jaita ji in English that I know of, offering valuable information of his entire life.  This slim book is organized into five chapters, Bhai Jaita - the Sevadar, the Resolute, the Teacher, and the General.  It is immaculately researched and annotated and is a beautiful combination of faith and fact.  It leaves you wanting much, much more.
