Juliet yearns for the ebb and flow of life lived avidly, for the pace and challenge of city living. The conflict between her love of husband and children and her own passionate need for expression is intensified by her move from small-town Canada to Southern India. The stifling restrictions on Juliet's freedom are magnified in the plight of her young widowed neighbour. The beautiful Yashoda longs to embrace the Western values that would release her from the strictures of Indian tradition. But the ancient mores are powerful and enduring, and challenging them inevitably leads to tragedy.

    " I read this about 20 years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very realistic and evocative descriptions of Indian village life from an ex-Pat's perspective. Great read "

    " Much darker than I had expected this is really beautifully written, and terribly sad - the suffering is great, and the imagery is beautiful. You can taste the indian atmosphere. "

    " After Rushdi, I found this book much more enjoyable. There was a great deal of evidence of social custom and political/historical issues were explained, although not in great detail at least so that you understood what was going on. "
