A quote for Monsoon Memories

When Oliver emailed me and said that Heather Gudenkauf had consented to read my book, I couldn’t believe it! I was excited and at the same time extremely nervous. I had reserved Heather Gudenkauf’s ‘The Weight of Silence’ at Waterstones, captivated by the blurb and had devoured it the moment I had a copy of the book in my hands. I hoped fervently that this amazing author would like my book.

And then, at the weekend, an email arrived from Oliver, with this wonderful quote from Heather Gudenkauf and I was so thrilled that I danced around the living room while my children laughed.  Here’s the full quote:

“Monsoon Memories by Renita D’Silva is an honest, captivating peek at the human heart, the haunting power of memories and the fierce power of truth. Beautifully written, Monsoon Memories is an engaging, thought-provoking story that will remain with you long after the final page.”

I would very much like to know what you think of ‘Monsoon Memories’ too. Whether you agree with Heather Gudenkauf or not, I would love to hear from you. Not long to wait now. The book is out June 21st and you can read the first couple of chapters here:
