This novel deals with many subjects without losing track of the main story.

An opportunity to express in writing the various conflicting factors that Indian women have to deal with prompted author Uma Balasubramaniam to write “Beyond the Horizon,” (published by Partridge India) an intense novel that encapsulates the emotions and feelings of an Indian woman living in India.

This book takes readers into the journey of Manohari Shekar, a dreamer who goes through childhood and adolescence walking the primrose path of fantasy. Married at 20, she is pushed from this path to tread one that is submerged in prejudice, deceit and subterfuge while trying to find her feet in the ethos of the Brahmanical culture to which she finds herself an alien. From a childhood governed by algebraic equations and riders, to murders and arsenic, the protagonist finds her hands full.

“Many women and children will identify with the character of the protagonist Manohari Shekar,” Balasubramaniam says. “This novel deals with many subjects without losing track of the main story.”

Balasubramaniam hopes that through the publication of “Beyond the Horizon,” readers will learn to have the courage to face life and its innumerable conflicting problems without losing faith and spirit.
