An illustration of seven stylized arms in green and black on a white background, radiating from the centre of the image, overlaid with fuschia text, ‘She of the Mountains. Vivek Shraya.’

She of the Mountains is a beautifully rendered illustrated novel that weaves a passionate, contemporary love story with a re-imagining of Hindu mythology. Both narratives explore the complex ways that we are formed and transformed by love, and show how the process of learning to love and be loved by another can ultimately—and sometimes painfully—bring us back to our selves.
