I really liked this book. It came recommended to me by a dear Pakistani friend who lived and breathed this story. Quite frankly, the writing style is not my favorite but it is fine and the story will open up a piece of the history of India, issues of prejudice and colonialism. Ms. Sidhwa was impeccable credentials for writing this story and it will captivate you in surprising ways. I also recommend her book The Crow Eaters.
