Series: Blessings in India
Author Kay Marshall Strom accomplishes what she sets out to do with her novel, The Hope of Shridula, part of the Blessings of India series. She writes a compelling, page turner of a story that draws the reader into the struggles of the people of India and the evils of the caste system. Consequently and indirectly, it calls for Christian justice and teaches readers to put their faith in God instead of earthly things and to "be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret it leads only to evil" (Psalm 37:3-8).
Strom's book may suffer from a lack of a solid genre. Many readers love a good Christian romance or fantasy off the shelf, but Hope of Shridula comes across as more general historical fiction and is less likely to grab the potential reader's attention. It contains no romance, but, rather, a moving story of a young girl and her struggle to make sense of the injustice of the caste system. The book also lacks a solid conclusion, at least as far as the salvation and survival of the main characters go. Perhaps Strom will solve the matter in the sequel, The Love of Divena, to be released in the fall of 2012. Until then, readers can appreciate The Hope of Shridula for what it is: a beautifully written book worth any Christians attention. Harmony Wheeler, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
