Shweta Ganesh Kumar’s A Newlywed’s Adventures in Married Land


“Dependent!!?”

Mythili and Siddharth realize that being newlywed in a foreign country is very different from being passionately in love, long-distance.

She has just moved to the Philippines to be with the love of her life and new husband, Siddharth. After being a hard-as-nails reporter who covered crime stories of the goriest kind, Mythili is now just a ‘dependent’. On top of that, unemployment, encounters with expat-wives and culture shock leave her feeling like she has fallen down a rabbit hole. Will their love survive, or will she become just another unhappily married expatriate wife?

Will this real life Alice ever embrace her Wonderland?

this was the first book that I read from indireads. Loved mythili’s character. I could emphathise with her predicament. Shweta has a wonderful style of writing. Very lucid. Wish there was a sequel to this 🙂

I just love the title to begin with! Mythili seems to be facing the kind of life a lot of young women face today – a tug-of-war between marriage and career. Wonder what happens in this one.
All the best Shweta!
