Rarely does one come across a book that one wants to savor, while at the same time eagerly turning pages to find out what happens next. Oleander Girl is so delectable, I found myself wishing it would never end. When it does, it leaves you with a lingering effect, much like the scent of oleanders.

‘Sister of My Heart’ is predominantly a book on female relationships. It explores the various facets of women- the good, the bad and the ugly. A refreshing change from most novels that depict men in the roles of hero and villain, most of the prominent characters in this novel are determined, strong women.
