Fabulous book! I loved the Indian context and the historical story of Indian Jewry.
T he book certainly had parts that were gripping, but I personally felt it was too long.
Definitely worth reading.

A really great read. It gave one a really good idea of the history of the Jews in India in the 1800's with a compelling story line. I would really recommend this super book. I couldn't put it down!

Not often that a book like this comes along - Impossible to put down as you are transposed into another time, another world. So sensitively and cleverly written that you truly step into the shoes of the main character, Dinah Sassoon and experience a very privileged life in 19th century India, gaining an insight into family dynamics, politics and the opium business. From the very beginning Dinah's life is built on the profits of the opium trade, and yet devastated by it, and we see her transformed from a girl whose life is arranged, managed and manipulated to an educated and intuitive woman who takes control.

Amazing story. It was s though the author was writing her own biography. Maybe her ancestors were involved in the opium business.

I find it difficult to pick a really good read. I like quirky, interesting books based more in fact tan fiction. If there's a bit of history thrown in, all the better. I also like to try different authors. So, for me,
Flowers in the Blood, ticks all those boxes. Dinah is a woman in a man's world. Her story is believable and her family is made up of characters recognisable in most families. I really loved this book.

I really enjoyed this book. It keeps your interest from the opening lines to the very end. A dark secret lies within this descriptive book which the protagonist is unaware of until she has grown up. The book takes you through her life with lots of twists and turns and you are never short of wondering what else could possibly happen. A thoroughly great read which I would highly recommend.

Well researched story written as a journal written years after the events. Didn't need her married sex details which were unlikely to be reported in a jounal which Dinah left to children after her death. Amazing details about the Jewish trading community in 19C India and the opium trade.
