Second book of the Ram Chandra Series; a sequel that takes you back.
Ramayana usually dwelt on the primary hero - Rama. So it is good to have a book talk about Sita. Her strong character and power comes through. She's not just playing second fiddle and that's the highlight.
Why Sita holds a tough swayamvar isn't convincing. The book is a bit slow and also repeats from Book 1.
