Book Review: The Kamin’s Daughter

Author: Nithya Sashi

The story is filled with two main parallel tracks. One belongs to a senior journalist of TNN network, Koena, and another to her husband Shom, a celebrity chef.

On the surface, they seem to be a regular career-driven family and active socialites. However, the plot unravels with a blast at the Delhi CM’s bungalow that shakes the foundation of Law and order in the Capital. Especially when the blast suspects are the Naxalites. Koena is touted to cover the story and each layer of the report gives way to another lying underneath. All are pointing to something deep-rooted that questions Koena’s very existence.

The quest for truth takes Koena on a sojourn into the dark lives of the coal-mine workers and to her shock she unearths her connection to that life.

there are many sub-plots where she also realizes her husband isn’t someone she has known in the past two decades.

The author has intricately weaved the plots and with a fast-paced narrative has managed to bind them all together in the end. A very exciting edge-of-the-seat read.
