The book focuses on Maya, who is trying to overcome her past and embark on the future, but with India's conflicting troubles threatening the small town she lives in, she looks to her landlord and peasant friend Charu to get her through.
The plot is enticing however concentration is needed to keep up with the action.
Despite this, the book is a beautiful story of trying to get over the hill from the past to the present. No matter how difficult Maya's life becomes, her strength and determination to push forward is an inspiring one.
A good read to experience new culture and way of life.
To be released 10 February 2011, £18.99 hardback.
