5.0 out of 5 stars Synopsis from back cover, 17 Oct. 2008
This review is from: The Village by the Sea (Puffin Books) (Mass Market Paperback)
Hari and his sister Lila are the eldest children of an Indian family. Their mother is ill and their father spends most of his time in a drunken stupor. Grimly, Lila and Hari struggle to hold the family together until one day, in a last-ditch attempt to break out of poverty, Hari leaves his sisters in the silent, shadowy hut and runs off to Bombay. How Hari and Lila cope with the harsh realities of life in city and village, and how their inner strength and optimism carry them through, is vividly described in this warm, moving and powerful story.
