About the Book

The minute the sneeze droplets hit the back of Rohan's neck, he knew trouble was brewing. He tried not to alarm his family but couldn't fool Manasi, his wife of 14 years. Manasi always trusted her gut, and her gut was telling her, 'The worst is yet to come.' It was the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. Mortality rates were high, terror had gripped the world as an unseen virus felled the population. Treatment was at best experimental, there was no vaccine in sight. As Rohan was kept alive by machines, Manasi, managing her own ill health and that of their three children also stricken with the virus, battled to save her husband from the confines of her quarantine. This is a tale of survival against all odds, all for love and family.
