Celebrate with VIP member Cynthia Claus, with the release on Amazon of her first book, "An Orchid Sari" The Personal Diary of an American Mom in 1960s India."  This story of Cynthia’s trip to India with her Indian husband and their toddler son to present themselves for the first time to the Indian relatives is told through diary entries and saved letters home to family and friends. Cynthia faithfully captures all that she experiences on this adventure and her honest reactions to it, all the while gamely keeping her son entertained and out of danger in a society that is like nothing she could have imagined. (Big shout out and congrats to our Cynthia for this great accomplishment!)
