Silver Dreams

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.

"A TOUR DE FORCE." —Kirkus (starred review)

Alaska, 1974.
Unpredictable. Unforgiving. Untamed.
For a family in crisis, the ultimate test of survival.

Ernt Allbright, a former POW, comes home from the Vietnam war a changed and volatile man. When he loses yet another job, he makes an impulsive decision: he will move his family north, to Alaska, where they will live off the grid in America’s last true frontier.

Thirteen-year-old Leni, a girl coming of age in a tumultuous time, caught in the riptide of her parents’ passionate, stormy relationship, dares to hope that a new land will lead to a better future for her family. She is desperate for a place to belong. Her mother, Cora, will do anything and go anywhere for the man she loves, even if means following him into the unknown.

At first, Alaska seems to be the answer to their prayers. In a wild, remote corner of the state, they 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 Allbrights’ lack of preparation and dwindling resources.

But as winter approaches and darkness descends on Alaska, Ernt’s fragile mental state deteriorates and the family begins to fracture. 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. In the wild, there is no one to save them but themselves.

In this unforgettable portrait of human frailty and resilience, Kristin Hannah reveals the indomitable character of the modern American pioneer and the spirit of a vanishing Alaska—a place of incomparable beauty and danger. The Great Alone is a daring, beautiful, stay-up-all-night story about love and loss, the fight for survival, and the wildness that lives in both man and nature.

"I read Little Fires Everywhere in a single, breathless sitting." –Jodi Picoult

“To say I love this book is an understatement. It’s a deep psychological mystery about the power of motherhood, the intensity of teenage love, and the danger of perfection. It moved me to tears.” - Reese Witherspoon

“I am loving Little Fires Everywhere. Maybe my favorite novel I've read this year.”—John Green

"Witty, wise, and tender. It's a marvel." – Paula Hawkins

From the bestselling author of Everything I Never Told You, a riveting novel that traces the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and the enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives.

In Shaker Heights, a placid, progressive suburb of Cleveland, everything is planned – from the layout of the winding roads, to the colors of the houses, to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead. And no one embodies this spirit more than Elena Richardson, whose guiding principle is playing by the rules.

Enter Mia Warren – an enigmatic artist and single mother – who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl, and rents a house from the Richardsons. Soon Mia and Pearl become more than tenants: all four Richardson children are drawn to the mother-daughter pair. But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status quo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered community.

When old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese-American baby, a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town--and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides.  Suspicious of Mia and her motives, Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past. But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating costs.

Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, and the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger of believing that following the rules can avert disaster.
