"Sunlit Hearts" by Meenu Mehrotra

In her stunning second novel, Indian diaspora author Meenu Mehrotra returns to that scorched territory of the heart she knows so well. In “Sunlit Hearts” (ISBN 1468009001), she introduces us to Medha, a young female writer whose seemingly perfect life with Rishi, her husband of an arranged marriage, comes tumbling apart at the seams. 

For years, Medha has carried a torch for Nikhil, her unrequited love from college. It has left a void that she has tried to paper over with motherhood, marriage and her growing success as a writer. But after 20 years, Nikhil falls from the sky like rain into her arid marriage. He upends Medha’s life, and introduces a chaos that will either restore her soul or destroy her life. 

Called by love back to her homeland, Medha heads to India with her young son to reunite with Nikhil. Back with her beloved, Medha soon senses the repercussions of separating her son from his father. Her soul tormented by the thought of tearing her family apart, Medha returns to the warmth of her marriage. It’s the only way she can honor her son, and retain her ardor for Nikhil. Ultimately, she will defy her culture’s deep conditioning to pursue a bond with both men, as the only route possible to nurturing and restoring her self.

“Sunlit Hearts” is the story of a woman who battles to save herself and find her place in a foreign land. A tortured love story, this bracing novel illustrates what Sufi poet Rumi had in mind when he proclaimed, “The wound is the place where the Light enters you,” says Mehrotra.

Mehrotra hopes that her novel reads like a journal in which readers may be able to see their own life being reflected. She believes her work will touch readers’ souls while making them question their inner selves and the paths they have chosen in life.

“Sunlit Hearts” is available for sale online at and other channels.
