Will Sita return to Ayodhya to become queen of the land or is she destined to be mistrusted and live alone for the rest of her life?
Adapted from the ancient Indian epic, the Ramayana, this is a touching tale of love, honour, and sacrifice that reveals one woman’s shining strength in an unforgiving world.
Born in 1980 in Dubai, Saraswati Nagpal was an early reader. On graduating from three letter-word reading, she swiftly plunged into the world of legendary gods and goddesses, living the fantastic stories in her head, and believing in them with the complete faith of a child.
She took to writing as a young girl, planning her first book when she was ten years old, though she managed only one chapter then. She wrote plays, stories, and poetry through high school and college. As a student of Indian classical dance and music, Saraswati presented myths through her stage performances, her favourites being the stories of Krishna and Arjuna.
A bit of a word traveler, Sarawati studied in Dubai, Delhi, and lowa, her parents and brother cherished her love for letters and always knew she’d be a writer some day. Saraswati counts every author she has read as an inspiration, moving her to tell stories. she can spend hours delving into the fantasy fiction of Trudi Canavan, Robert Jordan, David Gemmal, and Terry Brooks. Her dream is to write many magical epics and she is working hard at it.
Saraswati has been teaching young children for five years. And enjoy helping them weave their own stories through words, music and movement. She finds the snow-clad Himalayas in India and the Drakensburg Mountains in South Africa most nourishing to the writing spirit, and currently spends her time between the two countries.
