“Rani of Rampur is the first novel by Suneeta Misra. It is the story of Rani who is a journalist in a small city in India. She lives with her parents and two younger sisters. Early in the story, Rani travels to visit with her mother’s sister, Savitri, brother-in-law, Vir Singh, and their children. Rani is there to help plan the wedding of Vir Singh’s son, Durlabh, from his first marriage.
Being a journalist, Rani is quickly drawn into the mysteries of each member of this extended family. Through Rani’s eyes, the reader learns just how dysfunctional a well-to-do family can be.
I really enjoyed Rani of Rampur. I learned a lot about the culture and politics of India. I cannot wait to read more from this exciting new author!
