Ramona is a thirty-year-old successful interior designer who falls in love while on holiday in the USA. After a whirlwind romance and hurried engagement, Ramona suddenly calls the wedding off just days before the ceremony, shocking her orthodox parents.

Misha is a painter, trapped in an abusive relationship. As her situation gets worse, she confides in Ramona who becomes a source of support for Misha and her twelve-year-old daughter.

Scared and scarred by the rough tides of marriage, the two women forge a friendship that will last all their days.

Written in simple and touching prose, Lilacs Bloom in My Backyard is a coming-of-age novel for the urban, professional woman, admirably blending the possibilities of a new way of life with age-old love and friendship.

~Lilacs~ Will Bloom In Your Mind For Sure...

This book really touched my heart … deeply!

What a debut by‘Meenu Mehrotra’ … Hats off to you for choose alternate sexuality subject, that too with simplicity and heart touching prose’s.

I fell in love with Ramona. Such fine relatable characters.

This is one book to be read slowly ~> reading each and every word of it (you actually don’t feel like reading in a rush).
The writer takes you straight to the streets of California then to India then to picturesque Sydney … She know where she is...
