While there is no official record of it, many legends hold that despite Karna's second marriage, Vrushali & Karna were in fact soulmates & loved each other deeply as spouses unlike the message conveyed here. Neither did she commit suicide, she decided to end her life as Karna's sati. A detail omit in this book.

Karna’s wife is the first book for my #madeinindiareadathon, covering prompts 3rd, 8th & 11th.
And I would like to encourage more people to join this #readathon and let’s read together.
I must tell you, this book was on my #TBR from long back, and ever since I’ve read #MenakasChoice, I had decided, I’ll read each book from this author, because they are simply amazing. She focuses on the women characters from the stories of Mahabharata, and other epics, which I’ve never heard of.
Her books focus on the women’s life, their struggles and portrays whole story through their view.
When we watched Mahabharata, we have never seen the roles Uruvi, Karna’s Wife played. This is the most fascinating thing about Kavita Kane’s books. When i read this book, I felt each and every feeling and emotions Uruvi must have went through.
When I first read Menaka’s Choice, I fell in love with Menaka and now it’s Uruvi. I’m even looking forward to read all of her books, yes, and that day will come soon.
The story begins with Uruvi, daughter of King Pukeya, had a dream about Karna since the first time she saw him at the archery tournament in Hastinapur. And from that day she fell in love with him.
One day, Uruvi’s mother, Queen Shubra decides to have a Swayamvara for her daughter. But Uruvi wanted to marry Karna. Being a kshatriya girl, she can’t marry a sutaputra, yet she desires to be his wife.
Uruvi is shown as a strong women who stands for herself in every circumstances. The father-daughter relationship is described so well, I related it to my relations with my dad.
Reading Kavita kane’s books, I feel very connected to the characters and get more involved in the book.
The end was really unexpected and emotional.
I recommend to all mythology readers.
I will give it 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5
I would love to know your thoughts on this book. Have you read it?
Those who like historical fiction, better give this book a miss. It only adds writers confused understanding about Mahabharata.
