About the Book:
The Ramayana is India’s most famous epic, a tale filled with adventure, heroism, romance, magic and danger. But like all epics, it is male-centered, its women pushed to the edges. In THE FOREST OF ENCHANTMENTS, Chitra Divakaruni retells this story in the voice of Sita, the heroine of the Ramayana. Beautiful, brave and spirited, Sita accompanies her beloved husband Prince Ram to the forest when he is banished due to a stepmother’s trickery. The adventures that separate her from Ram, how they are reunited, and the unexpected turn that Sita’s life takes just when she is ready to live happily ever after are explored in The Forest of Enchantments. At once timeless and timely, this story of a woman’s courage touches on contemporary themes such as #MeToo, violence against women and single motherhood and will resonate with women everywhere. A national bestseller in India with rave reviews, the novel has just come out in the US.
