Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors
The Rajes Series
“Paying cheeky homage to Jane Austen’s beloved books, the pride and prejudice in this novel come in all flavors for both main characters, as an Indian-American neurosurgeon and a Rwandan-Anglo-Indian chef meet their match together in life and love. While Dr. Trisha Raje and DJ Caine are thrown together by family responsibilities and reluctantly drawn to each other for reasons neither want to identify, the rest of the family members are just as intriguingly introduced, making the happily ever after ending of this book only the beginning of this wonderful new series. The seamless merging of cultures and traditions suffuse the funny dialogue, empathy of the characters, and well-built plot with an evocative richness the reflects the realities of a 21st century life. Incredibly timely and representative of women as both mothers and working at the top of their field professionally, and of physical illness and (dis)ability struggles and triumphs, this book should not be relegated to only the category of women’s fiction, but should be celebrated as an example of where all types of literature should be heading – increasing representation of the myriad ways races, cultures, ethnicities, nationalities, and abilities influence, inform, and clash with family responsibilities, individual identities, and personal choices. ”BrocheAroe, River Dog Book Co.
