When Tulsi first meets Madhav, she is irrevocably drawn to his chiseled good looks and charm. Although wary of his many dalliances and the string of broken hearts left in his wake, she is surprised by the intense desire that Madhav arouses in her. And before long, she forsakes her family, her prospective career, her fiancé - all for the love of this inscrutable man.
But love can be like poison. Years later, Tulsi escapes to the ancient city of Vrindavan, seeking redemption amidst the cries and prayers of its anguished widows. However, when her past catches up with her, old wounds resurface with dramatic consequences.

A short yet powerful story the dark side of love
Set largely in the holy city of Vrindavan, this story by KR Meera is the fictional autobiography of a Meerasadhu, a widow who devotes her life to Krishna.
We learn how Meera came to arrive in Vrindavan and about her lover, Madhav.
This was my first book by KR Meera. I would certainly listen to more books by her.
