Format: Paperback
Where Earth Meets Sky by Annie Murray is lovely novel to read. The novel recaptures a historical phase. India was ruled by the British for many years, after the long existence of the moguls. Britain was the most powerful empire in the world, as unfolded in the novel. As a reader, you will learn a great deal about past events. The commonwealth represents an important chapter in British history. The British commonwealth is included in our education syllabus today. The wealthiest families owned huge mansions and staged traditional English tea parties in the most scenic areas of India including the enchanting beauty of the Himylas. The women were portrayed as domestic figures in the household, with the aid of native servants. The man held senior ranks in the army. The novel provides a real historical insight that is beautifully depicted.

The story focal point is about a young and beautiful lady Lily. She makes a fresh start, by leaving the land raised as an orphan and embarks on a long and daunting journey to the majestic land of India. She is acquainted with a charming captain and her snobbish wife to be employed as a nanny to an adorable child. She later joins the household as a housekeeper of a pocessive doctor and ill wife. The novel is a real journey of Lily's life not just in India, but includes episodes adventures in Britian. Her beauty and nice personality attracts huge amount of interest, but is an unwanted contributor of deception and betrayal. She ends up in situations unexpectly.

Where Earth Meets Sky is a great joy to read and lovely piece of historical fiction to read. It shifts between the industrial settings of Midlands and the the Raj period of India. If you express a deep interest in history, then I would recommend this particular novel to read. It is beautifully and vividily written and it feels though you are relieving events as it unfolds.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book although totally different to her other books which are normally stories woven around Birmingham. Ms Murray sent her central character to India. Therefore,there weren't so many references to B'ham. But,nevertheless the storyline made compelling reading. I have read all of her books and cann't wait for her next novel, which I have no doubt will be soon,as she has become a prolific writer.I hope though that she will return to base her books on and around B'ham as I relate to these better especially living in the B'ham area. More, more, more Ms Murray.

I wondered if perhaps this book was a first for the writer, but no, it appears she has penned at least a dozen! I really found the characters irritating and the storyline rather repetitive. Despite the fact Lily has the strength of character to rise above her lowly station in life then travel, on her own, to India to start anew, her strength does not prevail - as she appears to be hell bent on blundering into the same hopeless relationships throughout her career. The episode of her experiences at the hands of the Doctor (and his colleague) were so unconvincing and I thought, at times, quite laughable! Sorry to spoil the run of good reviews but I found the characters unconvincing, shallow and... it just didn't flow. Thankfully it only cost me 99p!

If you've read any of Ann Murray books previously, I'm sure you will enjoy this one. She writes so that you're there with all of the people in the story lines . Thoroughly enjoyed all of the characters especially with Lilly as the most prominent in everyone's life!! The ending is the icing on the cake , pick this book up, you won't be disappointed!!

Like all the othe books I have read by Annie Murray this was a thoroughly good read and the pace of the story was kept up right to the end. Just when you think you know what the next part is going to be it changes and keeps you wanting to to read to the end. Every part of the books I have read so far by Annie Murray are exciting and not one part has a boring bit, the only sad part is when you come to the end of the book!

This book started off in Birmingham with the heroine seeming like Cinderella but eventually going to work in service in India. I loved the descriptions about India, it almost seemed real to me and that I was there! The story had a quick pace without leaving out any descriptions for me. I thoroughly recommend this book.

I have read Hopscotch Summer and soldier Girl, which follows the story when they grow up. I hadn't realised that Where earth meets sky was part of a trilogy until reading the reviews. Cannot put these books down once started, but please tell us when they are part of a series as I don't want to miss any out.Would love them listed as want to read them in the right order and not miss anything out. Keep on writing Annie Murray, your books are so interesting about the period and the characters so real. I will eventually have read them all - a real treat. Christine (Nottingham)

I love Annie Murray's books and usually cannot put them down, but this was mediocre. The character was an intelligent girl and made sensible decisions, yet let men take advantage of her. Wasn't consistent but was still an okay read.

A completely new direction for Annie Murray. This novel is set in India and England and apart from a few brief references to Birmingham she has departed from her usual setting.It is alovely novel and really grips you and of course it all turns out Ok in the end.
