4.6 out of 5 stars

on 9 January 2018
Loved this book! Short and sweet read, but evokes emotion. Although written by a Sikh, paints a non-partisan picture of the partition of India. As a person of Pakistani heritage, I would say this is essential reading for any descendant of India.

India on the Pakistan border during partition. Well developed and interesting characters, a fascinating insight into the lives and beliefs of villagers and officials during a time of great trauma.

It is a classic narrating the atrocities and genocide committed on the partition of India in 1947 when
innocent citizens became the victims in the crossfire.

Beautifully written, heart rending tale that focuses on community and personal moral dilemmas rather than the politics against a devastating backdrop

Raw and powerful, the book transports the reader into a simple world turned upside down by harrowing events. The characters are diverse but each memorable.

Very good book which is able to paint a picture of what India was like during the 1947 partition. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn more about that period...in a easy manner.
