Ruhi is eighteen years old and determined to pave her own path through life, not such an easy thing in 1970s India. Her choices are not always her own, especially with a mother who rules the roost with cutting remarks and a whack from her rolling pin.
Yet when an unwelcome houseguest reveals a family secret, Ruhi may have found the key to her freedom.
Travel back to the world of the award-winning novel All the Tomorrows, in this short story about Jaya and Ruhi Kapadia before they became married women.
Evolved Publishing presents a prelude to the critically-acclaimed All the Tomorrows. At a little over 9,700 words, it's the perfect distraction from your hectic, stressful day. [DRM-Free]
