A few words about the novels, from Jennifer Kumar:
"A little about Cheryl Snell's book, Shiva's Arms. It's a book about an American woman married to a South Indian man. This book is unlike any other I have come across about Indian culture written by a non-Indian. It's realistic and doesn't rely on stereotypes and preconceived notions but is based on how real people live real, complex lives as real people (that happen to be part of different cultures)."
"Rescuing Renu: a great book, Cheryl! I am almost thru reading it the SECOND time!! It's really riveting, edge of seat reading, read in almost less than a day! Fascinating. Thanks for writing this book [and featuring my photo on the cover!]."
