The book is written in a deceptivly simple style that allows the author to draw you in and give all the characters shape and substance.
One can almost smell the spices! A real magical read. Highly recommended.
W Edwards, Riyadh.
the characters were warm and human we all need to be loved and I am so glad they found happiness together
This book made me shed many tears
The style is at once flowing and jarring; a mix of flowing thought and halting speech that feels both familiar and foreign - a novel of extreme contrasts. The characters are fragile and all too human, afraid of losing their roots, but hoping for a better life in America than they had in India. There's something absolutely charming about this story that I can't quite put my finger on, almost as if one was under a spell while reading it that lingers after you've finished the last page. Absorbing, exotic and mysterious.
