Congratulations to Vrinda devi Sheth and her mother Annapurna Johannson, illustrator, on the launch of their first book in the trilogy, Sita’s Fire. The first book, Shadows of the Sun Dynasty, is now available for sale through Amazon.com or with the publisher. The mother-daughter team have pushed their individual crafts to their limits to invite every reader into this magical world, and they’re even launching a digital version of it, in PDF format so you can read it in electronic devices as well, using software from sodapdf.com and others.
There will be a launch party here in Gainesville on Saturday, August 27, 2016. For details about the mantra and dance concert, as well as to purchase the book, please visit: https://tickets.brightstarevents.com/event/sitasfire-fl
Here is praise of the book from a renowned scholar & author, Krishna Dharma, author of “The Ramayana: India’s Immortal Tale of Adventure, Love, and Wisdom”: “Vrinda Sheth’s brand new retelling of the Ramayana brings the great epic vividly to life. She weaves an insightful story around the original narrative, plunging us deeply into the drama filled lives of its many fascinating characters. A highly entertaining read that never loses sight of the profound spiritual themes that run through the revered classic. Moving and uplifting. I can hardly wait for the next two volumes.”
