The Madras Affair by Sundari Venkatraman

I was one among the many beta readers who had the opportunity to read the manuscript of ‘The Madras Affair’. I have been a fan of Sundari’s writing ever since I read her first book and ‘The Madras Affair’ is yet another best seller on her shelf.

The Review

The story begins with a rousing speech that Sangita Sinclair gives at a NGO that she has founded. Sangita is an enterprising character with a haunting past.

Married to a groom of her parent’s choice, Sangita’s life becomes a living hell with an abusive husband. Sexually abused Sangita’s only solace in life is her new born son. Thankfully she finds relief from her dreary life when her husband dies in an accident leaving her a widow. Sangita’s orthodox parents want her to live the life of a proper widow and try to impose dead-old traditional belief.

This is where Gautam makes an entry. Gautam is an hot American professor who teaches in the local University in Madras. He meets Sangita at the hospital where she works as a receptionist and falls in love with her. Sangita, who believes that she is incapable of physical relationship thanks to her past experience is reluctant to get involved.

This is a story of love, healing, transformation and triumph. Sangita is a woman capable of incredible strength of character but she is also vulnerable, delicate and charming. Gautam is a true gentleman and perfect foil for Sangita. He is pushy where he needs to be and charms the reticent Sangita into accepting his proposal of marriage. If only we could have more men like him!

Overall Madras Affair makes a great read and a perfect romance for the weekend!

Plus Points: Great plot, lovely story and a hot hero!

Minus Points: Wish there were more chapters about Sangita’s past life

Verdict: Go for it!
