IN SHIVA'S ARMS by Cheryl Snell
is the author of ten books of fiction and poetry, and has published over four hundred poems, stories, and book reviews online and in print. A multiple Best of the Net and Pushcart Prize nominee, her work was selected by Dorianne Laux for a recent Sundress Best of the Net Anthology, and she won the Lopside Press competition for Prisoner's Dilemma, poetry inspired by game theory. She cooks in the Indian idiom and plays a mean classical piano, and Shiva's Arms is her first novel.
About the Novel
When Alice marries Ramesh, she is plunged into a battle of wills with her mother-in-law. Namesake of a god, Amma reigns over Alice's household until a family secret is revealed that costs the old woman everything. Now it is up to Alice to heal the rift, as Shiva’s Arms evolves into an exploration on cultural identity, the power of reconciliation, and the meaning of home.
