17, Morris Road

Parul Sharma

Sometimes, home is a place between a longing for the past and the allure of the future...

Soon-to-be empty-nester Gayatri Trivedi has found herself at a crossroads: her only son is off to the land of excessive pizza and cola, her husband remains indifferent to her feelings, and the object of her teenage affection is inviting her to Dehradun. But Dehradun has changed a lot, and so has Arbour House, the colonial-era bungalow that still has a piece of her heart. Now as she returns, she also returns in time, reminiscing about the memories she made with people who changed her life when she was sixteen.

As the cloud of nostalgia clears and her future comes into view, Gayatri must decide if she is ready to let go of what-ifs. Equal parts charming and delightful 17, Morris Road weaves together a heartfelt story of times past and emotions buried, and most of all, of eventually finding one's place in an ever-changing world.

Parul Sharma

Parul Sharma grew up in small towns of India, places of unhurried pace, dusty streets and quirky people. She never stopped thinking about those places and the people, and it reflects in her work, which often uses geographic settings as quiet characters. Parul deeply admires classical writers and remains committed to sharp humour and beautiful language as her primary tools of storytelling.
