REVIEWS

“An absorbing blend of history and romance. India is depicted in all its vivid, sensual beauty, and the minor characters are as sympathetically portrayed as the lovers themselves.”Historical Novels Review

"After the Storm by Sangeeta Bhargava is a lovely novel set in India during the time of the Freedom Fighters uprising led by Gandhi against the British Raj in 1941. Princess Malvika Singh, who attends a boarding school and meets new friends but is known as being mischievous and spoilt. But tragedy strikes close to home and is a very sobering experience for all the girls at the school, especially the Princess, who is forced to become responsible and independent. Of course, in every good novel there must be unrequited love and its yearning, which we follow through the eyes of Raven, the teacher whom she trusts. The tumultous times are the setting and violence makes love blossom and the reader learns about this period of Indian history. An enjoyable read for romantics and history buffs. "
