I received The Doppleganger by Ruchira Khanna as a review copy from the author and am thankful to her for the book.
Sandra lost her husband, Sam, and was lonely in this not-so-alone world until she met Sam’s look-alike, Fran, from another world. Will Fran be able to provide all the happiness Sandra has been yearning since Sam’s physical body left?
The Doppelgänger is a metaphysical short story that will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions as the astral and physical bodies clash.
Sandra, a single mother, lives with her son Liam in the small town of Santa Barbara in the southern region of California. Liam is mature for his age and does not play with many toys and mostly has masks. Yogi, their dog, was his best toy before Yogi died. He is good at studies as her late husband, Sam, used to stay at home and had laid a solid academic Foundation for Liam as did his school teacher. The certain instances in Sandra’s life which remind her of a deceased husband. Liam is excited one day because he wants to show his friend how he can become a superman. And by accident Sandra meets not only Yogi’s but also Sam’s doppelganger and the story begins
This story is different from what I expected. I was expecting Sandra to meet Sam’s doppelganger on the street but she meets him in a different ubiverse.
The characters are well developed and the descriptions are detailed. An even pace is maintained throughout the book.
