Have you ever been fascinated by different cultures from all over the globe? Do you find the Counterculture of the 1960’s and 1970’s compelling? Are journal-type memoirs something that you enjoy? If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of the above questions then I suggest that you read Devika A. Rosamund’s “The Road East to India”. In this memoir, Ms. Rosamund shares with us what it was like to be a young 20-something woman travelling across the European and Asian continents in the late 20th century.
When I was in high school, I became fascinated by Betty Mahmoody’s autobiographical work Not Without My Daughter. In reading that particular book until it literally fell apart, I found a strength in the author that I admired exceedingly. I tried to look at the situation through an objective lens and to take everything in a fact-by-fact basis.
