Jasvinder was 16 when she ran away from home because her parents had arranged a marriage for her. One of her sisters ends up marrying the man Jasvinder was supposed to marry.
Some 30 years later this book covers her journey to India where she finds family who she didn't know about, and that she hadn't brought shame on the family as she was led to believe.
If you've never visited India, there are some really good descriptions of villages, the Golden Temple and others.
A worthy ready to see how other cultures live.
Jasvinder Sanghera, you are a very brave woman. I felt my heart weaken at the times where she described how she imagined her parents to be at the Golden temple and in the fields where her father used to sit. Her story is so so sad. But I am glad she has been able to find some family that is willing to stay in touch.
I wish her and the family all the best and hope we contiinue getting updates in the form of future books from the author.
Keep at it Jasvinder :-)
