“Swapna expresses various dimensions of an extramarital relationship… These are stories of ordinary people in ordinary circumstances which can be related to real life… An enjoyable fast-read, the book leaves you with a lot to ponder.”
-From the Foreword by Swarupa Chavan, award-winning novelist
“Swapna Gopinath is an excellent storyteller, who writes sensibly and sensitively on the bold theme of extramarital affairs in her astounding collection of short stories. Each story subtly weaves in a message, which is not moralistic but delves into the reason why the protagonist crosses the Lakshman Rekha. The stories have brilliant climaxes. I can’t name my favourite story, because all are so unique and fascinating.”
-Oswald Pereira, Journalist and Bestselling Author
“Love Without Warning is a highly intriguing book with a collection of short stories about the contemporary extramarital journey. It was a page-turner for me because I am passionate about the topic of human nature and why we behave the way we do… Each story in this book is a journey of the highs, the lows, the pitfalls and the ordeals that can occur in this type of relationship. Kudos to Swapna Gopinath for broaching this particular subject which helps us to see far and wide. I highly recommend this book for all of us because none of us really knows when forbidden love will strike without warning but at least, these stories show us many examples to prove that prevention is indeed better than the cure.”
-Amy I. Ramdass. Chief Creative Coordinator, Envision Earth Media
