Review

Reviewed by Tracy A. Fischer for Readers' Favorite

In this sweet, enchanting love story, we are introduced to two wonderful characters in Julie and Kishore. Author Carol Jackson writes in such a way that I truly felt that I knew both of them, and I grew to care deeply for them and their relationship. Exploring themes of racism and the challenges of creating inter-cultural families, Julie & Kishore is first a wonderful romance, and then serves to make the reader think about the challenges that such couples face.


This book would be enjoyed by any reader who loves romances, sweet stories with great characters, and thought provoking books that don't shy away from exploring cultural differences. I see that this book is planned to be the first in a series, and I very much look forward to reading the next by this promising author.

This is a great read. Many of us don't know a lot about Indian culture but with the growing cosmopolitan population of New Zealand, inter-marriage between races isn't that unusual. In the 1980's, of course, this was very unusual.
I look forward to reading more of Julie & Kishore's life.

It was so well written and so easy to read..
Love your story. Congrats. Must get hold of your next, you've definitely got a talent for writing.


Have finished your book. Wow! I felt your terror being lost at the markets, and can't imagine how surreal your wedding must have been.

About the Author

I am born, bred and live in Auckland, New Zealand. In real life, just like my books, I am married to an Indian man. My husband and I have been together for more than twenty years. Friends and family urged me to write a book about us, finally I found the time. Julie & Kishore is loosely based on my life, although I have changed too much of the content to call it non-fiction. I have written two books, Julie & Kishore and the sequel, Julie & Kishore – Take Two. I am currently writing a third, Nina’s Art, which involves many of the same characters but is a different story.

By Marina J. Neary on March 4, 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
The novel reads like a memoir - because it is to a large extent a memoir, rooted in the author's personal experiences. Her heroine faces prejudices without bitterness. What I find refreshing is that the speaker/protagonist, for being a thoroughly modern, empowered Western woman, she is not an activist of any sort. She is not championing for interracial marriage but rather pursuing her own happiness, even it it means stepping outside the boundaries of what is common in her social circle. Not being a deliberate rebel by nature, she does not bask in the controversy that her relationship causes. She still craves the support of her biological family. Julie is tangible and real, as she is no stranger to hand-wringing, giggling, gossiping or tearing up. She's girly and sentimental and vulnerable. I applaud the author for not depicting her heroine as a cartoonish social justice warrier who walks with her middle finger pointing towards the sky and whose every action is directed against the proverbial "convention". Julie is a very orthodox girl - in the context of 1980s New Zealand - who does something slightly unorthodox. Let's be candid. Not all interracial marriages are the same. The differences are softened by the similarities in class. After all, Julie married an Indian boy from an upstanding family whose socioeconomic background was similar to hers. Would her parents be just as supportive if she were to marry a Maori? Historically, European-Asian and European-SouthAsian marriages have faced less scrutiny than European-African marriages.

very well written, a beautiful story with a happy ending. The cross cultural issues are well addressed. Took me back to the love of my life, although he is from Sri Lanka many of the traditions, family values, caste and beliefs are very close. I was very happy that Julie and Kishore were able to get by those barriers. Kishore's family seem amazing. Personally things did not work so well for us, the 'others' tore us apart. Though he is still and always will be the love of my life for over 30 years. Can't wait to read take two. :)
