    I can understand why you loved the book so much just from the description you gave and the interview you had with author. It is more than just a romance novel. But the sounds of it, it provides a glimpse into the culture and traditions of India as well as the Bollywood scene.

    You definitely peaked my interest. I am going to see if it is for sale in Taiwan.

    Great interview! I might have missed this book otherwise. Do you have a Goodreads page, by any chance?

    My favorite part was learning the child bride story that inspired Dev. Chilling & surreal.

    Thank you for putting this book on my radar! Loved your description of it, but your interview with Sonali was fascinatingーI feel like I learned a lot, and am curious to find out more, both about her and the book she wrote.

    upon the recommendations above I bought the book and have now read it. The author does a great job in pulling you into the story. I have lived in many parts of the world and the US and Canada and have never been in the company of people that have used the “F” word as much as these people. Most people don’t use it and it really was offensive to me with a cringe each time I saw it in print. Please lighten up on the “language” part and the beautiful love story will be what it supposed to be. L
