Monique Grandy Pens an Inspirational True-To-Life Story

Hope, Rhode Island – WEBWIRE

In “The Hooghly Girl: From My Childhood in Jail in India to My New Life in America,” Monique Grandy tells her unforgettable story of growing up as an orphan in a jail in India and how she found a new and unexpected life in America.

In 1970, at the age of three, Kusum Lata and her younger brother fell asleep while riding on a train with their mother in India. When she and her brother awoke, they were shocked to find that their mother was no longer there. Inconsolable and unable to provide their names or address, the siblings were given new names – Munni and Munna – and placed in a local jail with other abandoned children. Ultimately, Munni and her brother Munna were sent to the Hooghly jail, where children had no outside visitors except the monkeys that would sometimes steal their bread.

Luckily, Munni was adopted by an American family in rural northern Minnesota, where she had trouble adjusting to a new culture, language, climate, and family. Through good times and bad times, Munni, now known as Monique, has remained positive and hopeful that her biggest wish will come true: that she will be reunited with her long-lost brother, whom she hasn’t seen since they were separated at the Hooghly jail.                

This heart-wrenching yet inspiring true-to-life story of Monique Grandy will let the readers realize that no matter what happens, there will always be light at the end of a dark tunnel.                

The novel “The Hooghly Girl: From My Childhood in Jail in India to My New Life in America” will be proudly displayed at the 2018 BookExpo New Title Showcase which will take place this May 30, 2018.  Grab a copy now!
