    Hi Renita, it is so heart touching . I recollected all our college times. When I was reading this, my daughter sat next to me watching my face and she could smell that I was deeply touched with your article. I told her how you used to be in the college and your beautiful poems that were published in our college magazine. Good work Renita! Proud to say my friend is very good author – an International author

    Dear Renita,

    I have just discovered your books and have been continuously reading them. (Housework is forgotten and meals are now takeout!!!) Your sensitive and thoughtful approach to life situations is amazing. I have read both Forgotten Daughter and Monsoon Memories and wanted the stories to continue. You are an amazing writer and I look forward to continuing to read your heartwarming books.

    Just wanted to say I love your books and the way you write. The descriptions take me back to beautiful India! I have read them all and am currently reading A Mother’s Secret. Your books are touching and I can imagine all the characters as if they were real. I have recommended them to everyone I know! Keep up the great work and cannot wait for your next book. I’m trying to read this one slower but it’s so difficult to put down! Wishing you every success. Priya (London)

    I have read all your books. I just finished Monsoon Memories. I love your stories because I feel like I am in India. I especially enjoy the foods you describe because they make me want to try all Indian food. Reading your stories have also educated me in a fun and imaginative way. I look forward to your next book.
