Biographical historical fiction that takes the reader across India during the last decades of the British Raj.
From a girlhood among Hindu shrines to widowhood and Christian conversion, Rama seeks her destiny. Is it only to educate Hindu widows? Or does God have a larger plan in mind?
Rama's Labyrinth traces the life of Pandita Ramabai, a social reformer who rose above personal adversity to rescue and educate famine victims.
"[A] thoroughly convincing dramatic take on a strand of Indian history rarely touched on in fiction." (Steve Donoghue, Historical Novel Society)
"Cleanly written, subtle in the treatment of intimacies, with excellent sensorial immediacy, Rama's Labyrinth is a weekend's engaging pursuit." (Five Stars - David Lloyd Sutton, San Francisco Book Review)

A Christian Propaganda Book
By Sandra Wagner Wright NO
The 2nd half was total Christian ideology.
She read the Indian accents beautifully. Her English accents were irritating, inaccurate, and hard to listen too.
I have never written a review before but felt mislead by the description of the book.
If you are not a practicing Christian, I can not recommend this book.The first part of the book is very interesting and gave a deep understanding of the Hindu religion and practices and was historically interesting and atmospheric.
The second half of the book was all Christian dogma and the story was hyperbolic and unbelievable, I was offended by the dogma and the idea that the Christian religion is superior to Hinduism.
Thought Provoking and Courageous
The narration and story had a great flow which made listening easy, yet enjoyable. The story hooked me until the end.
The various Hindu Holy sites were quite informative for me and memorable.
"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom."
