I wont be able to do the book justice that it deserves.
Take it for granted that, if you buy this book, you should only begin it when you have an available sick day coming..... youll be up all night reading it........literally !
As the editors have accuratly stated, if you love Esquival, Tan, Hoffman, or Allende, ( etc etc) then youre going to ADORE Manicka. This is her first novel and beleive me, she ranks up there with the best.....
*(multi generational novel that begins with a young teen being married off in Ceylon.........)
