So, I'm among the 4 and 5 star people this time. I've read the 1 and 2 star reviews about how unrealistic the story is, how the author didn't know what she was talking about as far as the culture of India during the time period of the story, etc, etc. I don't care. I really liked the story and the way it was told. I don't usually like love stories. They're too sappy and the men are too perfect to be real, etc. But this story took me to India, a place I have never had a desire to visit, and I loved every minute of it. (I still don't want to ever go there.)
The flow of the story was very easy to follow and I loved how the author showed past and present times.
All together very easy and nice read, I am going to try other books by the same author now.

Thought provoking, and beautifully written I enjoyed every word. I am a bit bewildered by the 1 star review by someone who is critical of the historical accuracies, this is a novel, a story and therefore does not have to be strictly accurate.
I am 55 and really grew up knowing very little about the days of the Raj other than to feel ashamed yet again at this country's arrogance in believing that they know best. So if some of the details are a little exaggerated, who cares. I loved learning about the different Hindu ceremonies and day to day life in rural India.
I loved this book and am so very glad that I read it.
Love this author.
