“The Perfect Groom” is a woman’s journey towards being her own person

Sumeetha's novella

I don’t normally review books on my blog but I start with the review of Sumeetha Manikandan’s novella “The Perfect Groom”.

“The Perfect Groom” is a woman’s journey towards being her own person

Sumeetha Manikandan’s novella, “The Perfect Groom” brings the old world charm of the novels written in seventies and before and yet is set in modern milieu; partly in India (Chennai and Mumbai) and partly in the strange country US.
