ABOUT THE BOOK:
So begins Maya's story in the picturesque countryside of Maharashtra, where she grows up amidst cruelty and domestic violence, being an unwanted girl child. Yet, like a lonesome beacon beset by sinister wilderness, she pursues her dreams of reaching the stars with her tiny wings. One night, a twist of fate triggers a series of incidents, when she loses everything she had-even her virginity. Severely traumatized after her father's death, her mother's imprisonment, and her own gang-rape, Maya finds herself all alone on the streets of Mumbai, with wolves lurking around for raw flesh. She's weary, but not wary. She has no sense of the fate that awaits her. What follows, would change her life forever, as also yours, as her heart wrenching, yet inspiring story echoes through time.
The cover of the book is beautifully designed and perfectly suits the title and story. Soumyadeep has good command over the language. The use of beautiful language attracted me the most. Her Resurrection is a heart-wrenching story, which will leave you in a completely different state of mind. The courage and strength that Maya carried within her were really commendable.
The book is excessively inspirational and life changing. Readers would love the story as it has the power to change one's way of visualizing a woman's strength. The description of characters and the way story is presented by Soumyadeep is very interesting.
'Her Resurrection' bravely paints an appalling picture of the society. Heartbreaking, hopeful and immensely healing at the same time, this emotional roller coaster ride through dreams, tragedy, and triumph is a moving tribute to the womankind.
The book is highly recommended to all the novel lovers. It is a MUST READ!
