Format: Paperback
For anyone who loves India, and for those who are thinking of going, I can't think of a better book to prepare you, or to remind you, of the fascinating sights, smells and tastes, and above all, of the people of India.
Jill Lowe obviously loves the place, but she recognises its problems and she can wickedly poke fun at some of the officious Indians she meets (and at herself) which makes the book so fresh. Deep down, she absolutely adores everything to do with India. I loved her account of her romance with her tour-guide and the incredible adventure of actually marrying him! He was a lucky man, but she sounds thoroughly fulfilled, too. She is a very good writer. I adored her book and cannot recommend it highly enough. Read it!

Finding the Heart of India is heartfelt, witty, warm and a penetrating look at India through the eyes of someone who fell in love with it, but still sees its faults. It is light, funny and involving. You want Jill to find happiness and she does. On the way she describes some wonderful characters and you get the eccentric Englishwoman's travelling and observations, which are priceless. The romance, so beautifully described, between herself and Yadav is completely believable, and inevitable.
For anyone interested in India, this ia book you can't miss and won't forget, ever!

Format: Paperback
Having recently returned from India, 'Yadav' was the perfect read for one so missing the truly unique sights, sounds and smells of the most beautiful, unusual and fascinating place on earth (well, in my opinion!) The book traces one woman's life from divorce and bankruptcy to love and happiness. In a brave and independent move Jill Lowe sets off to India to explore the country and give herself some deserved me time. Along the way she meets and falls in love with her taxi driver, Yadav. Together they travel the country, and over the years make a life for themselves as husband and wife. Lowe's writing completely encapsulates all that is India as you follow her involvement with the country and one of its countrymen. An honest, original and, at times, very funny account of her romance with Yadav and India. If you love 'Yadav' you'll love India; if you love India you'll love 'Yadav'.

Poignant and moving. Narrative just right in descriptions evoking all senses and making one recalls memories if you have visited India before. Honest and sharp in it's observation.
Lowe's love for India and Yadav shines through and it felt good to know love stories like this are not just fictional.
Would certainly recommend this book.

So sad that Jill is no longer with us but she left this world after writing a wonderful book.

RIP Jill.
Yadav I hope you are doing OK

HASH(0x92fb5c54) out of 5 stars I like to call Jill a friend 30 July 2015

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I like to call Jill a friend...her story lives up to the person I met as our tour guide. Jill's memoir disclosed intimately her take on a very different culture from her own. Told with honesty, humor, and insight.. Her 'sportsmanship' exceeded my wildest imagination, however!
