About Book

Astha has everything an educated, middle-class woman could ask for: comfortable surroundings, children and a dutiful loving husband. So why should she be consumed by a sense of unease and dissatisfaction? And when she begins a relationship with another woman, is she liberating herself from her marriage, past and culture - or foolishly jeopardising everything she has?
