DUNN LORING, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 20, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Internationally celebrated author Monica Saigal (formerly Monica Bhide) presents her latest novel, A Kiss in Kashmir: an enchanting tapestry of late-blooming love and second chances, echoing the emotive storytelling of Nicholas Sparks.

In a narrative reminiscent of the charm in Under the Tuscan Sun and the moving tales of Eat, Pray, Love, Saigal introduces readers to Sharmila, a painter embarking on an unexpected journey of the heart amidst the enchanting valleys of Kashmir.

While orchestrating her daughter’s wedding, Sharmila discovers destiny has crafted a different story for her—one of second chances and unexpected love. When she meets George, an American professor of Indian art history, their shared past of lost love leads them on a journey that beautifully unfolds against the serene backdrop of Kashmir. This book is an ode to reimagined fairy tales – not of rescues, but of companionships where two souls walk together, giving each other space to grow and flourish.

Current media is filled with stories of those who have found true love later in life. The UK’s Guardian news site is actively recruiting the love stories of older adults for its “How We Met” column. A Kiss in Kashmir taps into this current zeitgeist uplifting love stories among older adult, in a timely tale that affirms the heart can find a connection at any age.

Kashmir comes alive, not just as a backdrop but as a character, breathing life into Sharmila and George’s journey. Their story reminds us that even after loss, love can find its way back. Saigal’s tale is genuine, heartfelt, and flavored with the authentic touch of Kashmir. A Kiss in Kashmir is an intimate sojourn, promising the heart that love, in all its forms, can indeed find its way back to us.” – chef and filmmaker Vikas Khanna.
