Sweta Srivastava Vikram’s upcoming novel, Louisiana Catch, follows Ahana, a 33-year-old woman in New Delhi, who is struggling to move past the physical and mental abuse inflicted by her ex-husband, in a society that does not promote dialogue towards healing. Following the death of her mother Ahana travels to New Orleans as a spokesperson for a women’s rights organization and she flourishes. The story captures Ahana’s affluent family and upscale society in New Delhi and then shifts to her time in New Orleans, her work, romances, and the mystery of an online predator. The story addresses catfishing, grief & vulnerability, the safety of online support groups, physical & mental abuse, and the benefits of yoga and meditation to promote healing.
