"Rani Singh's biography of Sonia Gandhi is an intimate and insightful portrait of an extraordinary woman... a compelling and important story of tragedy, family and a nation on an upward trajectory." - Henry Kissinger, former Secretary of State"Rani Singh has opened the door on one of the most powerful yet surprisingly little-known women in the world." - Jon Snow, UK Newscaster
"A biography that isn't only carefully researched but offers new details about Sonia Gandhi's extraordinary emergence from obscurity to most powerful woman in Asia (and arguably in the world). Rani Singh tells Sonia's story in remarkably vivid prose - tough but fair, critical but empathetic... an enormously readable work of scholarship and journalistic endurance." - Pranay Gupte, author of Mother India: A Political Biography of Indira Gandhi
"Rani Singh's book draws back the curtain, allowing the reader to encounter Sonia as the person behind the larger-than-life figure that she is for India's millions. It is a highly readable and rewarding work for anyone interested in modern India and its contemporary politics." - Ashley Tellis, Senior Associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
"Rani Singh weaves a compelling love story into the complexities of Indian politics with skill and sensitivity... If you want to understand modern India, you need to understand the Gandhis. Ms Singh has made an important and timely contribution." - Tim Marshall,Foreign Affairs Editor at Sky News
"Amoving tribute... sets the scene for a thorough understanding of the fast-moving undertow affecting political life in India today, and of the critical influence of Sonia Gandhi." - James Brewer,business journalist and former editor of global insurance coverage for Lloyd's List
"A book of human scope that reveals an intriguing political history and a life of compassion" - Kirkus Reviews
'Sonia Gandhi's progress to the influential position she now holds would be remarkable for anyone. In her case, given her particular background, it is a truly amazing story. Rani Singh's telling of it brings it vividly to life.' -Bill Kirkman, Wolfson College, Cambridge, The Round Table

The fact that this family just can't let go of india and treats it as if its their personal property is breathtaking.
We do not know her beliefs on Indian major religion - Hinduism. We know only one thing that she wants to make her son the next Leader of India and continue Nehru- Gandhi Dynasty. And it is a nasty Idea.
The author is a great "Chamcha" of Sonia family.
