Happy Sunday: ‘Coming Home’ is now available in most countries

My debut novel, ‘Coming Home’ is now available in most countries in paperback and on Kindle.
What a pleasant surprise it was when someone I met once, at a training program, sometime in 2014 told me that they had bought the Kindle version of the book. The surprise was not that they had purchased the book but that it had made its way to Cape Verde (where this person is from), an archipelago of islands off the West Coast of Africa. It’s all thanks to Colleen, who helped me with publishing the book on Kindle so it reaches readers across the globe.

Blurb : Twenty-six-year-old, Shanaya, finds her idea of home and family ripped apart when she loses her mother. Her effort to drown herself in her job proves to be financially rewarding and the organisation recognizes her work. But, even this is not enough to fill the vacuum in her heart or answer the questions, her mother’s sudden death had given rise to. In her quest for peace and the need to hold her family together, she leaves her job in Dubai and moves to India. The story finds Shanaya journeying across geographical planes and inner landscapes to finally reach ‘home’. Coming Home is a heartwarming story about self-discovery, relationships, loss, love, destiny, the choices we make, and how these choices eventually lead to what we are destined for.

What others say about the book?

‘A sensitive story of a coming of age. Smitha Vishwanath’s Shanaya is a believable heroine: loyal, warm-hearted, but with weaknesses that make her real. The story of how she finds love and her way in life makes for satisfying reading, and the evocative descriptions of places traversed are the icing on the cake.’ Madhulika Liddle, novelist and short story writer.

‘With the help of a sophisticated and nuanced prose style, Smitha has created perfectly fleshed-out multi-layered characters who will stay with you even after you have finished reading the book.’ Abdullah Khan, Author of Patna Blues and A Man from Motihari

While the book has romance for the romantic, for the discerning banker her background as a banker is amply demonstrated in her descriptions of Shanaya’s work at the bank and the various situations she handles with aplomb. These are detailed and in no sense out of context and in a way will be of interest to the banker reader like me. The depth of Smitha’s writing lies in her ability to delve deep into the characters she creates, the sensitiveness with which she handles them and brings them alive, so much so that the readers find themselves woven into the fabric of the book and an active observer of the events. GS Subbu, Author of ‘I’m Just an Ordinary Man’ and ‘Diary of Mrityunjaya’

        I will, even though it’s a Kindle edition. I’ll put my Kindle in such as way that the front page will be visible. 🙂

    I read your first chapter last night and really enjoyed it. I’ll be a while getting through it, though, because I’m reading four books at once–several for the project I’m working on myself, but I’ll get there!
