Description

Bombay Girl begins Kavita Daswani’s trilogy, telling the coming-of-age story of a girl who is forced to try and find her own in a misogynistic world.

Summary of the Book

Sohana Badshah has always had a carefree life. She moves to London to pursue an interior design course, where she meets Jagdish Sachdev. She falls for him, but when he leaves her, it breaks her and she returns home. However, at home, her grandfather’s business empire is up for grabs, and only the highest bidder or the most worthy grandson stands a chance to inherit it. Even as her brothers race to grab the reins of the empire, Sohana finds herself wooed and her familial ties are about to be tested, once and for all.

Good Book

Bombay Girl, from our very own Indian writer is a great book to read while travelling. A light one but still thoroughly enjoyable as you get into the thick and thin of the characters and situations. I bought this book to give Kavita's writings a try and I am not disappointed.

May read the others as a result of this.
