Sharell Cook is 30 years old and living a privileged life in Melbourne?s wealthy suburbs. She has it all: the childhood-sweetheart husband, the high-powered job and plenty of cash to splash.

And it?s not destined to last. In a dramatic turn of events, Sharell?s marriage breaks down and her perfect life falls apart. Sharell opts for a complete change of scene, travelling to India to do volunteer work.

But reinventing herself is not as easy as it sounds, especially in the chaos and confrontation of India. Just as she is beginning to wonder whether she?ll ever find her way, she meets a man. And so begins Sharell?s transformation.

Set in the Himalayan hills of Manali, the beaches of Kerala and the madness of Mumbai, Sharell?s is the real story of what falling in love with an Indian, and India itself, really entails.

Henna for the broken hearted by Sharell cook, reminds me of the Bollywood song “Thodasa Pani, Thodasa badal, ho kahani” that is a bit of clouds, a bit of rain and a tale is spun.
My apologies to the author, when the books started I assumed another firangi on the Indian bhang! But it was interesting. Through 260 pages the author takes on various journeys,
There is a strictly geographic travel through Kolkata, Varka Manali and Bombay. Where people from the organized west come to see an exotic India or an improvished one. The world of tourists and tourism a world of exploitation and illusion.
There is a second journey of conflict and resolution from a confining marriage, and hyper organized world to letting oneself go till chaos and then creating order in that chaos I found that intriguing.
Final one is awakening to daily spiritualism.
What I appreciated about the book was the author’s journey to break her shackles from being an accountant to finding and accepting her creative side.
It was heart warming and reassuring to read about her relationship with Aryan – though it did have a Mills and Boons touch about it. To her comfort in fitting into an Oriya household. The book was pretty superficial and rambled until we got to the chapter on revelations in the mountains.
To me the high light of the book was the passage “a simpler life had taught me to find joy in what I had. Even though our apartment was small, I had so much more freedom and flexibility than most people I knew. There was beach, a park and a huge shopping centre nearby. I worked when I wanted to work. I was writing and being creative. This new life had purpose and passion”
And the excerpts from the matrimonial advertisement. Sharell has been too polite to mention that the requirement for the bride is fair and the looks of the male species is irrelevant!
Another place where I empathized with the author was when she talked about intrusion from all and sundry.
A believable interesting book which is unusual the author is neither in awe of the exotic India nor is she condescending to the quixotic India. She accepts the duality of the country and sees its reflection in her own self.
An interesting read overall.

A must read

I knew Sharell from her blog, and I was eagerly waiting for her book, this one didn't disappoint one bit.

As an expat who moved across the world for love I can relate to a lot of things she writes about in her book.
This is the story of a lesser known breed of firangi int he country, those who are here to stay making a new life in India. My kind isn't into ashrams, and a quick cultural fix. We aren't there on a short term business assignment either, we don't have the over inflated expat life, and she explains it in a very easy to read and captivating style.

I couldn't put the book down once I started.

Wonderful story of how Sharell's life changed, loved it.

She writes wonderfully and makes you feel like you are were with her.

The long long wait for this book was made worth it when I read it in less than 3 hours.

Great job!
