How far would you go to change your life?
Sharell is 30 years old and living a privileged life in Melbourne’s wealthy suburbs. She has it all: the childhood-sweetheart husband, the high-powered job and plenty of cash to splash.
And it’s not destined to last. In a dramatic turn of events, Sharell’s marriage breaks down and her perfect life falls apart. Sharell opts for a complete change of scene, travelling to India to do volunteer work.
But reinventing herself is not as easy as it sounds, especially in the chaos and confrontation of India. Just as she is beginning to wonder whether she’ll ever find her way, she meets a man. And so begins Sharell’s transformation.
Set in the Himalayan hills of Manali, the beaches of Kerala and the madness of Mumbai, Sharell’s is the real story of what falling in love with an Indian, and India itself, really entails.
Sharell was born and brought up in country Victoria, Australia. After gaining a Bachelor of Business she moved to Melbourne, where she worked for ten years in the accounting and finance sector of the Victorian government. Then, India called. Sharell now writes about India travel for a New York Times company. In addition, she maintains a popular blog on her life in India called Diary of a White Indian Housewife. Sharell lives in Mumbai, India, with her husband.
