The Story:


How far will a mother go to save her child?


“I have no use for a baby girl. Get rid of her tonight!” He towered over her as she cringed in fear.


But Hansa, a thirteen-year-old child-bride in rural India, refuses to remain a victim of the oppressive society where a female child is an unwanted burden. Instead of drowning her baby, Hansa escapes from her village with three-month-old Tara.


Hansa soon discovers that life as a teenage mother is fraught with danger. But a single lie opens the door to a promising opportunity far from home.


Just seven years later, Hansa finds herself fighting for Tara’s life once more, this time in an American court, with a woman she calls ‘Mother.’


Will the lie upon which Hansa built her life, defeat its own purpose? How can she succeed when no one believes the truth? 


A story of two mothers, two daughters and a fight to save a child, Fighting for Tara explores the depth of love and motherhood.

SpotLight of THE MULTITUDE OF RIPPLES by Vaachakmitra

THE MULTITUDE OF RIPPLES
by
Vaachakmitra
 
 
 
Blurb
 
The novel is a first person narrative of an entrepreneur who struggles to make sense of his life. He reconstructs his memory while recuperating from a nervous breakdown. The distortion in his narrative is not only the manifestation of psychopathology of his mind but also an exploration of human values. The novel demonstrates how optimism incorporates meaningful semantics even in the face of psychopathology. The dualism of hope and pathos creates a touch of absurd, almost reminiscent of Kafka and Camus.

Book Review of Inconvenient Relations (Inconvenient Relations #1) by Simi K. Rao

Inconvenient Relations (Inconvenient Relations #1) by Simi K. Rao

24355815

Shaan Ahuja found himself bowing to tradition and agreeing to an arranged marriage to the beautiful Ruhi Sharma. He went through the motions but had no intention of carrying through on his vows. His last foray into matters of the heart with an American girl had left him scarred and unwilling to try again. Thoroughly disillusioned and disgruntled he wasted no time in making his intentions clear to Ruhi on their wedding night. But, he was completely unprepared for what his new wife had in mind.

This multi-cultural contemporary romance story of an arranged marriage is a beautiful blending of showing the Indian and American cultures. Readers will learn more about the Indian heritage and the romance that happens behind closed doors in an Indian relationship in Simi K. Rao’s Inconvenient Relations. This coming of age story about true love explores multi-cultural issues.

TornadoGiveaway 3 Book No .75 DIRTY MARTINI by Kavipriya Moorthy

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

Name of the book: Dirty Martini

Author: Kavipriya Moorthy

The Story:

Life was all rainbows and daisies for the old-school, demure Preethi.

But an expensive mistake made her the oddball in the flashy world she chose. With her very survival threatened, an escape from the label the society had slapped on her seemed impossible.

When faced with a ‘why not?’ moment, Preethi found solace where she least expected it. Raghu walks into her life like a whiff of fresh air on a dewy morning. The elusive happiness he brought had the potential to heal the wounds life had inflicted on her. She could envision a future with him, provided he never discovers her past. However, fate played its favorite game, unraveling secrets she had brushed under the carpet, causing a rupture in their relation.

Preethi’s relentless pursuit to live to the fullest leads her on a different road to redemption, at a penalty. The sojourn costs her, her identity.

With her journey fueled by a need for companionship, will Preethi finally be at peace with what she had chosen for her life?

Dirty Martini dissects the judgmental, opinionated notions of the society. As Preethi treads on an arguably unconventional path, the journey evolves her threshold to understand the world better.

The Story:


Sometimes help comes from the most unlikely places … 


Living in a small village like Hibberton, it’s expected that your neighbours help you in a time of need. But when Andrea Kelly’s house burns down, taking all her earthly possessions with it, it’s the distant and aloof Doctor David Adams – the person she would least expect – who opens his door not just to her, but to her three kids and slightly dotty elderly mother as well. 


Andrea needs all the help she can get, dealing with aftermath of the fire and in the suspicious absence of her husband, Jonathan. But, as she gets to know David and his troubled son, Jake, she begins to realise that maybe they need her help as much as she needs theirs …
