Sita: Daughter of the Earth

by Saraswati Nagpal, illustrated by R. Manikandan
£6.99   paperback  Campfire Publishing, India (2011)

Sita: Daughter of the Earth by Saraswati Nagpal, illustrated by R. Manikandan In an ancient age, when gods and goddesses walked with mortals...
 
...Sita is the kind-hearted and intelligent princess of the kingdom of Videha. Married to Rama, prince of Ayodhya, her journey in life takes her from exhilaration to anguish.
 
Along the way, she has to leave behind the luxury of royal comforts and live the simple, harsh life of a forest dweller where lurking in every shadow is danger.
 
Ensnared in the evil plans of the wicked demon-king Ravana, Sita is abducted and hidden away in Lanka. Will Rama muster up a strong army to rescue Sita from the demonís clutches? Will Sita return to Ayodhya to become queen of the land... or is she destined to be mistrusted and live alone for the rest of her life?
 
Adapted from the ancient Indian epic, the Ramayana, this is a touching tale of love, honour, and sacrifice that reveals one womanís shining strength in an unforgiving world.
