Another enjoyable Rosie Thomas read. Two sisters, Connie a 'foundling' adopted by Jeanette's family. One man, Bill, who Connie falls in love with but unfortunately she cannot have as he is Jeanette's fiancé. There is betrayal and Connie departs and makes a life for herself elsewhere in Bali. Years later Jeanette contacts her to tell her she is dying. Connie knows she has to return to put things right between them. The added extra story of Noah, the son and Roxana (from Bokhara, Uzbekistan) was intriguing too, wasn't quite sure what the outcome of that was going to be, but in the end Roxana is the one that helps Connie in a round about way. I especially enjoyed the part when Roxana takes Connie to the 'hammam' and Connie experiences an overwhelming sensation of release of pain, anger and grief which helps her come to terms with what has gone on in her life.
A sensitively written book bringing things together between the past, present and forgiveness. I enjoyed the descriptions and rituals of the Balinese culture and the way it helped Connie, Jeanette and Bill come to terms with the inevitable.
