Product description

Review

"[With] finely wrought prose and expert characterisation, its focus on the search for love and connection in a chaotic, divided society is hugely affecting." - Anthony Quinn

"This is a mature, measured and relentlessly unfolding novel about friendship, alienation, betrayal, loss, self-discovery and unfulfilled love. An important novel, told beautifully with arresting delicacy and sensitivity." - Jacob Ross

"Perfectly judged, luminous prose which sings off the page like the sharpest poetry... Belonging is a big-hearted book from an author who can write with luminous delicacy and unflinching, visceral immediacy." - Catherine Smith

"What makes this such a captivating book to read? It enriches you... Sinha is simply one of the best storytellers I ve come across in a very long time." - Kadija Sesay (aka Kadija George)

"Sinha balances emotional drama with hard-hitting narrative and this is an excellent read, one of my favourites of 2015." - We Love This Book

"One of the most gripping, engrossing, heart-in-mouth novels I ve read in 2015... An outstanding first novel." - Shiny New Books

"A beautifully crafted epic of love and loss, ethnicity and homeland." - Bookanista

"A dream of a book, beautifully written and movingly told. It deals with the big themes of life: memory, secrets, family, and homeland, with an intimate eye for detail." - Brighton and Hove Independent

"Reading [Belonging] is a deeply felt, mesmerising experience." - Historical Novels Society

"A fascinating and fantastic study of Britain and India through the eyes of three generations of a troubled family. It is a beautiful book and firmly on my list of favourites." - The Committed Reader

"Ambitious and powerful... explores serious themes and delves deep into dark moments of history, yet remains beautifully readable and engaging to the last a brilliant, polished debut." --Sussex Life

"Touching and lithely written... reading it is a deeply felt, mesmerising experience." --Historical Novel Society

"Belonging has a lot going on. It's an epic novel of secrets, of loss, and of love; it's a novel that discusses race and ethnicity and colonial violence; and it's a novel of growing up." --Book Riot

"A gripping story of three generations caught up in the rights and wrongs of imperialism in India." --Paper Blog

"Every character is a fully realised human being with strengths and weaknesses, and Sinha writes each one with sensitivity and empathy as the truth of each situation is gradually unveiled. Love is the overriding emotion in this novel, a deep love that comes from understanding what has gone before in the hope that what is to come will be better, which is why this novel is one of my favourite books of the year." --Pam Reader
