    I'm a writer, a teacher, and a journalist. I love traveling, cooking reading, hiking, and writing, not necessarily in that order. I'm usually passionate about my projects and I'm passionate about this book since it's a personal journey as it uses bits and pieces of my family's story.

  1. Genre--The genre is historical fiction. The most comparable novels would be Isabel Allende's House of Spirits Amitav Ghosh's Sea of Poppies I'm using 'comparable' in a very broad sense, but the premise of history wrapped up in the fate of the novel's main protagonist and antagonist is the theme I found comparable. Possible Title-- The Last Rites of The Civilized World The Lost Horizon The Other Side of Midnight The Invisible Line The Torn Earth
  2. Story Statement In 1947, as the British prepare to leave India, a young Indian man brings his English bride, Johanna, back from Cambridge, where he has been studying law. He creates a minor cataclysm in his family since he has been engaged for years to his neighbor’s daughter, Sharmila. The turmoil in his family mirrors the intense communal disharmony on the streets outside, and soon both Johanna and Sharmila have to face an ordeal which is as shocking as it is revelatory.
