Review

"Louisiana Catch is perfectly relevant and lovingly bottom lines the urgency to become involved in the feminist agenda, all the while being a deliciously romantic and hopeful story. Sweta proves, yet again, her ability to illustrate all the nuanced layers of a woman's experience and honor her power to create change in the world."
--PALLAVI SASTRY, Actress (Blue Bloods)

"Louisiana Catch is a compelling read! I was swept into Ahana's world as she struggles to find a path forward after a turbulent and violent marriage. Sweta raises an interesting question--are we dest-ined to be defined by our choices? Read and find out for yourselves!"
--VANDANA KUMAR, Publisher India Currents Magazine

"A moving, modern story about letting go of the past in order to find true empowerment. As a longtime advocate of women in need, Sweta Vikram doesn't shy away from difficult topics. Louisiana Catch deals with the complexities of love, loss, history and home."
--GEORGIA CLARK, author, The Regulars

"Utterly unique, insightful and clever. Enthralling and confronting at the same time, Louisiana Catch draws the reader in and ultimately provides hope."
--BARBARA BOS, Managing Editor, Women Writers, Women's Books

"In Louisiana Catch, celebrated author Sweta Vikram reminds us that violence against women should never be acceptable and it's not the victim's fault. The sudden loss of a dear one and a divorce from an abusive marriage force Ahana to emerge from her sheltered life and re-build her confidence to organize the largest women's conference. While she is determined to help other women, she once again faces love and deceit along the way. Will that help her or deter her from sharing her story of abuse with other survivors?"
--DR. SHRUTI KAPOOR, Founder and CEO, Sayfty

"A very compelling read! I am in awe of Sweta's ability to intelligently capture, blend and integrate pertinent psychological issues that face society today."
--SUNITA PATTANI, psychotherapist, author, and trauma specialist

"Louisiana Catch is the story of a woman finding her voice and learning to listen to it. Sweta's descriptions paint a rich picture, capturing the complexities of relationships, culture and abuse, drawing you in and painting a vivid picture in your mind. A thoroughly enjoyable read that draws you in."
--KIMBERLY CAMPBELL, Executive Director, Exhale to Inhale

Across the pond, poet Sweta Vikram's second novel, Louisana Catch is timely in the wake of #MeToo. A grieving daughter and abuse survivor must summon the courage to run a conference to raise awareness of violence against women. We're huge fans of Vikram's poetry, where she deftly handles big themes and issues, and expect no less from this novel. "
-- FARHANA SHAIKH, The Asian Writer
