Publisher Description

A spellbinding story of forbidden love. Three continents, three decades, three very disparate lives:

Savitri, intuitive and charismatic, grows up among the servants of a pre-war English household in Madras. But the traditional customs of her Brahmin family clash against English upper-class prejudice, threatening her love for the privileged son of the house.

Nataraj, raised as the son of an idealistic doctor in rural South India, finds life in London heady, with girls and grass easily available . . . until he is summoned back home to face raw reality.

Saroj, her fire hidden by outward reserve, comes of age in Guyana, South America. When her strict, orthodox Hindu father goes one step too far, she finally rebels against him and even against her gentle, apparently docile Ma.

But Ma harbors a deep secret, one that binds these three disparate lives and hurtles them toward a truth that could destroy their world.

  • “From India, to England, to Guyana, listeners meet the main characters first as children who are struggling against the constraints imposed by traditional society and their parents. Anne Flosnik recounts the ups and downs of these varied lives with depth of feeling and sympathy. Her earnestness makes believable the innocent observations of children about the puzzling adults around them. Flosnik’s breathy voice sets the tone for the mystery and adventure at the core of this coming-of-age story…This well-crafted story, told with deliberation, makes the most of its dramatic twists and turns.”
