Love story by award winning author Raja Rao, Indian cultural influence to story.

Nothing like a love story to catch my attention. I read a little of the first chapter. I does seem a bit drab. Maybe skipping straight to the mushy stuff would be more interesting. Not sure if I'd enjoy this whole book.
