Slotted as a socio-political thriller, ‘The Temple Bar Woman,’ is a story of a simple village school teacher, Radha who vows to avenge herself against the man who destroyed her life. Fraught with danger, daring and deceit, this racy novel recounts a tale of love, loss, and loyalty in lives that are curiously entwined with one another while making an attempt to open the floor for a bold discussion on rape and sexual – violence.
