Beautifully written but not for the light reader!
Wow! This book was very interesting but honestly a little hard to understand at times. I suppose part of that was due to the very different culture that we live in. Since I am not that familiar with the Indian culture and history I was confused about why the Bakul and her family lived the way they did, especially in the way that Mukunda was treated. Ms. Roy kept me interested in the book and although it took me longer to read than most I did enjoy learning about India. I was familiar with some of the locations because my grandfather talked about being there during WWII.
I would recommend this book for someone that has the patience to read the book - someone that likes light reading would not enjoy this book.
