Synopsis

Custody by Manju Kapur

When Shagun leaves Raman for another man, a bitter legal battle ensues. The custody of their two young children is thrown into question and Shagun must decide what price she will pay for the freedom to live with the man that she loves.

Raman finds new happiness with a friend of the family, Ishita, who already has a failed marriage behind her. But when the courts threaten the security of the new family she has made for herself with Raman, she decides to fight for it – whatever the cost to the children.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

You'll always find what you never knew you were looking for and you're always spoilt for choice.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
