From the Publisher

Q 1. With all your books, you have experimented with various genres and sub-genres. How was your experience of working on a young-adult/ coming of age story in When Love came Calling?

Preeti: It was really a refreshing experience. For teens and young adults, the immediacy of any situation is magnified ten times more than what it is for adults. I did a lot of research into the teen brain, and understood the behavioral aspect of teens in different scenarios as opposed to adults before writing this book.

I think teens will make great entrepreneurs if they utilize their strengths; they are naturally prone to more risk-taking than adults.

Q 2. Who or what was your inspiration behind creating the characters of Puja and Arush? They are every bit relatable to most readers.

Preeti: My own two children are young adults. They have many friends who are exactly like Puja and Arush. My son has some traits of Arush; I also had a lot of inputs from my daughter. When I was writing this book, she was doing an internship at Singapore. During lunch hour, she would call me and we would discuss the book in detail.

Q 3. This book explores the parent-child relationship deeply. Please tell us your thoughts on this subject.

Preeti: I think most parents have no idea just how much to push their teens. Some parents are very authoritative (like Puja’s mother). They are ‘Tiger moms’. While it works well for some kids, (like Puja’s sister), it doesn’t work well for others. There’s truly no one-size-fits-all when it comes to parenting. The important thing here is to understand your child, and then help them grow up to be good human beings. Parents should develop the ability to accept teens and young adults for who they are, as opposed to who they want their children to be. I think this book will also help teens to see things from the parents’ perspective. Many of my readers who have read this book tell me that they have given it to their parents to read.

Q 4. For you, what’s the most unique feature of this story?

Preeti: It will appeal to everyone. Even those who dislike the romance genre will find something they love in this book. It is rich and detailed. You travel with the protagonists to Wayanad, Mattancherry, Jew Town, Derby and Heathrow!

Q 5. Do you have any favorite lines in the book?

Preeti: My favourite lines in the book are spoken in Chaitra’s voice to her husband Krishnan. (Chaitra is Puja’s mom).

She says, ‘Where is the rule book that says mothers have to give up their careers and be there for the kids? Why didn’t you wind up all your businesses and stay at home? Was she my responsibility alone?’

I think these are powerful lines, especially in the Indian context, where the primary responsibility of child-raising falls on the mother.

Q 6. Please share the most interesting bit about writing When Love Came Calling.

Preeti: I lived in the skins of the two characters while writing this book. It was great fun to ‘think like Arush, talk like Arush’ and then immediately in the next chapter, I had to switch to thinking like Puja and talking like her. After a few chapters, I had to switch to Chaitra’s voice. I loved that and it was a great mental exercise for me! My readers too say they find an immediate connection, and they have two distinct voices. That felt very fulfilling to hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Simple, predictable story with a pragmatic ending
Reviewed in India 🇮🇳 on 24 February 2022
Book :When love came calling
Author :Preethi shenoy
Pages :280
Publication : Shrishti publishers

Arush, art student, son of Indian immigrant parents who lives in UK, level headed who has his life figured out and goes in its way. He finds an opportunity to go to India for an all expenses paid international program to India and was excited to see the land where his root lies, where has never been before as his parents are not keen of being back there .

Puja ,business management student, the youngest of wealthy parents in Kerala, impulsive, live the moment kinda person who is naturally rebellious and the odd sheep in an otherwise perfect family, who is always measured up against her sister and never met the expectations her family has for her or don't mind giving any thought regarding where her life goes.

When they meet up in the community development program which is Ayush's happy chance and where Puja's mother enroll her against her will, it was all too natural and predictable that the opposites attract and they fall for each other.

When the young ones go on about their passionate romance, disaster strikes in the form of Sujit, Puja's school friend and the lovers are caught up in the mess of drugs, police involvement, media fabrication and politics. In the whirlwind of circumstances Puja goes back home and Arush to UK.

What happens to the fate of their relationship? Did it turn out to be just a holiday fling or much more is the story.

The description of Puja's family and the expectations on her are described very realistic and when both Arush and Puja understand their families point is beautiful and the ending pragmatic . I loved the beautiful illustrations in between, minimal and well portrayed and the quotes above them that express the turn of events in the book.
