How far would you go to change your life?

Sharell Cook is 30 years old and living a privileged life in Melbourne's wealthy suburbs. She has it all: the childhood-sweetheart husband, the high-powered job and plenty of cash to splash.

And it's not destined to last. In a dramatic turn of events, Sharell's marriage breaks down and her perfect life falls apart. Sharell opts for a complete change of scene, travelling to India to do volunteer work.

But reinventing herself is not as easy as it sounds, especially in the chaos and confrontation of India. Just as she is beginning to wonder whether she'll ever find her way, she meets a man. And so begins Sharell's transformation.

Set in the Himalayan hills of Manali, the beaches of Kerala and themadness of Mumbai, Sharell's is the real story of what falling in lovewith an Indian, and India itself, really entails.
