Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Karna's Wife comes this book about Urmila, Sita's sister and the neglected wife of Lakshman, and one of the most overlooked characters in the Ramayana.

As Sita prepares to go into exile, her younger sisters stay back at the doomed palace of Ayodhya, their smiles, hope and joy wiped away in a single stroke. And through the tears and the tragedy one woman of immense strength and conviction stands apart - Urmila, whose husband, Lakshman, has chosen to accompany his brother Ram to the forest rather than stay with his bride. She could have insisted on joining Lakshman, as did Sita with Ram. But she did not. Why did she agree to be left behind in the palace, waiting for her husband for 14 painfully long years?

    "A good book with a Not too good narration"
    Any additional comments?

    Narrator has time and again pronounced the names wrong and changed names (eg: mandvi as madhvi). It was really irritating but other than that her narration was good.

    "Good"

    I picked this up at the airport thinking it will be like Divakaruni's "The Palace of Illusions". But it is not. Somehow it felt superficial. The romance between Lakshman and Urmila could have been better. It is a good read albeit not as poetic as Chitra.
