Reviews: Musings Straight From the Heart

A couple of reviews in India. 

This one is from the blog Reviews and Musings, by Privy Trifles (Namrata)

The story is beautiful with such vivid descriptions that it makes you travel along from one continent to another with the characters. I enjoyed the beauty of the language the most, it is so enticing that it was simply thrilling to keep reading it. I enjoy such novels a lot, light on language, heavy on plot and emotions making it a perfectly enjoyable read on every page. From the pre-independence to the post independence era the detailing is very well described which speaks volumes about the author's research behind this book. 

Every page is so well narrated that you want to keep turning page after page to know the secrets hidden behind the whole plot. I stayed awake in the night just to know what happened because the excitement was just too much to contain.

For me, the woman on the cover was a strong woman; a woman who has been through a lot in life and has her own secrets. The synopsis mentions two names 'Savitri' & 'Saroj' but as I read the book I could identify the woman on the cover to be 'Savitri'.  Read more

Old World Charm

I love this review, because the author Ramya Mishra says that OMA retains that hard-to-find Old World Charm. Indeed: that's what I hoped to reflectin the pages of this book. Our world has turned so hard, so cynical. The heart needs replenioshment form time to time, and that can be found in the pages of a novel.  Here's an excerpt from her review:

After ages, I have read a book, which retained the old world charm. Yes folks it talks about love, but not the kind of love that today’s generation believes in. It speaks of love where, whether the person is around or not but the love never fades off. Hats off to the author Sharon Maas, for writing such a beautiful story which extends across globe.
