Overview

It's a long time since a man has paid me any attention, and I've forgotten how to act.


'Charles,' he says, tending a hand. I shake it, and his grasp is firm, authoritative. It tells of a man who knows what he wants. And at this moment, it looks like what he wants might be me. I feel a pulse shoot up inside me.



When her travelling companion lets her down at short notice, Nadia reluctantly agrees to take her recently divorced mother, Valerie, on her gap-year trip to India. However, her mother turns out to be anything but the conservative presence she had feared. As the two women explore India's most exotic locations, it is Valerie who experiences a sexual reawakening with a succession of lovers and Nadia who is forced to wrestle with her own inhibitions and repressed desires. The landscape and the people ultimately work their transforming magic on both mother and daughter, causing Valerie to think again about her ex-husband and tempting Nadia with the possiblity of true love.
