Mary is an British girl who lives with her loving parents in India during the colonial period. She becomes life-long friends with Sita and Amin, two young Indian locals that are major characters throughout the book. After the tragic death of her parents, Mary lives in England with family until she decides to go back to India to discover the hidden past of her childhood. What started out rather slowly, ended up consuming me as I couldn’t put down this emotional and heartfelt novel! The story has love, heartache, tragedy and deception swirling in it’s core that makes it one of the best stories that I’ve read this year! This is a fabulous addition to historical fiction.
