Title- Girl from Fathepur

Genre- Romance

The Blurb- “I love you Rajan,” she had blurted out, hands clenched tightly at her sides.
“Sana, you are only a kid…you will soon forget all this. Besides, don’t you also love Shahrukh Khan?”
A decade has gone by and Sanjana, now a highflying professional in Mumbai, thought she was over her childhood crush on the enigmatic Rajan. Back in her hometown Fatehpur for a family wedding, she bumps into him; he’s still enigmatic and the sparks are still there.

The Swift Summary- Sanjana working in a consulting firm is running away from her confused thoughts about another colleague of hers Krish who has proposed her.

During the complete ceremony Sanjana takes some harsh decision and comes back to Mumbai.

What are those decisions? Who does Sanjana love? Is it Krish or is it Rajan? Is Sanjana able to take up the right decisions for her life? If yes, how?

Read on this simple yet beautiful story from author Sarita Verma.

My View-   The story is set in a small town Fathepur. The Protagonist, Sanjana is shown as a simple yet beautiful sensuous girl. The other characters, the two heroes in her life and other family members are all shown lively and fit exactly in their role. The description of various places like Fathepur, Kumbh Mela is described in a very beautiful, livid style.
The full story is a simple read, which starts with a smile and ends with a smile. It’s something, which a common girl in love can relate to.
I like the cover and the family involvement in the complete story. At the same time there could have been more focus on the main characters and their story then, the side characters.

About the Author- A voracious reader of escapist literature, freelance writer Sarita Varma has contributed short stories for the Chicken Soup series and has written numerous articles for magazines and websites on history, travel, health and a host of diverse topics. A postgraduate in history, Sarita loves the light-hearted romances of Georgette Heyer, historical detective fiction by Ellis Peters and, at the other end of the spectrum, the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov. She juggles her long and active association with the Multiple Sclerosis Society of India during the day, with one-finger typing on the laptop in the quiet of the night. Writing for her is a means of communion and self-expression. It is also escapism—transporting her instantly into a
different, magical world of make believe. Meet her on Facebook or contact her at

The Final Verdict- I find this book a 'Coffee-table' relaxing read. It’s perfect for those who like to read about love and simple story. I will rate it 3.5/5.
