Silver Dreams

Notion Press
Free sample

Even as it traverses great distances from the Himalayas to Delhi, Mumbai, Thailand, Canada and finally the West Indies, Silver Dreams silently but surely closes in on the distance between the hearts of the aging lovers Kinnary and Rana. The lively exchanges between them as Rana woos Kinnary at a retirement home bring dollops of humor and nostalgia, pathos and experience to the fore.
However, with the longevity of modern marriage declining rapidly, how much chance does this second innings, that comes with its own baggage of two extended families, marital disasters and past feelings of failure, stand?
With the pace of a thriller and the mellow mood of 2nd innings romance, look out for Rana and Kinnary’s definitions of love, life and romance as they draw on memory banks, set out on a global adventure and even have a brush with voodoo in this unique tale of resurrecting relationships against the odds of Hamare Tumhare.

About the author

 With three successful books under her belt, including the path breaking, myth-shattering Mastani, and a vast repertoire of journalistic work as a perfect personal resource, Kusum Choppra is an author with the pluck to question the status quo through her writings. She distills experiences of a lifetime, and picks out grains of truth set in rich verbal embroidery to narrate stories from a much-needed feminine perspective.

 Her journalistic roots and storytelling skills enable her to write from the heart while examining issues objectively; and allow her to delve into the internal conversations that people have about what is happening to and around them.

 Kusum Choppra’s stories blend crisp storytelling with her signature style of written emoting that make “Aaine ko Aaine se Ruberu Karna” situations possible. They often bear the stamp of a delineation of unequal relationships that raise the question: “Is it not possible for male-female co-existence to be peaceful and non-confrontational?  Can the balance not be redressed?”

 Her forte is always a Twist in the Tail of the Tale.

In Kristin Hannah’s The Great Alone, a desperate family seeks a new beginning in the near-isolated wilderness of Alaska only to find that their unpredictable environment is less threatening than the erratic behavior found in human nature.

Alaska, 1974. Ernt Allbright came home from the Vietnam War a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes the impulsive decision to move his wife and daughter north where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.

Cora will do anything for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown. Thirteen-year-old Leni, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, has little choice but to go along, daring to hope this new land promises her family a better future.

In a wild, remote corner of Alaska, the Allbrights find a fiercely independent community of strong men and even stronger women. The long, sunlit days and the generosity of the locals make up for the newcomers’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.

But as winter approaches and darkness descends, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates. Soon the perils outside pale in comparison to threats from within. In their small cabin, covered in snow, blanketed in eighteen hours of night, Leni and her mother learn the terrible truth: they are on their own.
