Product description


“A riveting, historically accurate coming-of age tale of gutsy survival, self-sacrifice, and love... With artful compassion, Ostlere reveals the infinitely complex clash of cultures within both India and Maya’s family... A fascinating, epic page-turner.” - Booklist, starred

“Ostlere does a terrific job of transporting the reader to India, recreating this turbulent time in its history, and adding to the mystic of this country by writing the story in verse. It is made all the better because of the tender romance that entwines the story.” - VOYA Magazine

“In contrast to the hatred, mistrust, and violence, the friendship—and then love—between Maya and Sandeep offers hope, rebirth, and renewal.” - Publishers Weekly, starred
