A superb book! It brings the story of Sita alive for key issues in contemporary society. I would like all, Hindus and non-Hindus alike, to read it to their profit.

This book is very engagingly written, and approachable for young people of all abilities. At the same time, it is itself a multi-layered text introducing and developing a number of important concepts: a multiplicity of sources for a story; varieties of interpretation; how retelling of a story affects the lives of the hearers and the tellers...Together with the questions which relates the issues to the lives of the readers, this book provides a valuable resource for teachers and others which is capable of being used in a variety of innovative ways.
