Received in the post as a surprise RABCK and just taken out of quarantine. Thank you so much for this lovely surprise-you are very kind. I've read non-fiction by this author and am keen to see what her fiction is like.

REVIEW:-"I had mixed feelings about this book as I thought it was a little too chick-lit at first but it soon improved and I became interested in the goings on of the foreigners living in the UK during the second world war. I also learnt a lot about traditional Indian customs and enjoyed reading about Peggy's adventures and experiences in India. It brought tears to my eyes when Ajit met his mother unexpectedly after a long break-maybe because I've been parted from one of my own sons for a very long time due to the pandemic.
I thought the book had a satisfactory ending and would be happy to read other books by this author."
Reserving for Nu-Knees.

This book was sent by post to Nu-Knees. I hope she enjoys it.

To the finder:-
Welcome to bookcrossing -you have found a travelling book. Please make a journal entry now to say where you found the book in case it has been moved. Then, when you have read it, please come back and make a further entry saying whether or not you enjoyed the book and why. It is now yours to do as you like with it, pass it to a friend or just leave it somewhere different for someone else to find and help it with its' journey. Of course if you can't bear to part with it at the moment then keep it, but please let me know that you have found it. If you join bookcrossing, which is free and spam-free, you can follow the book on its' travels as you will get an email each time it changes hands, but if you prefer to remain anonymous, that's fine too. Please also say what you intend to do with the book next. Thanks for coming onto the site to let me know you have found the book.

I already have books travelling in many countries around the world-a list can be found on my bookcrossing profile.

When re-releasing this book please be aware that airports are not a good place to leave books unless they have a specific book exchange shelf or area, due to security problems, so they may well just be disposed of. Also charity shops may well discard books that have been labelled in any way and they mostly chose only the books in the very best condition
to place on their shelves and discard the rest-so another bad release option.

Thank you, daff, I love getting parcels of books through the post, thank you very much, especially when they include a chocolate treat :-) Greetings also to Mrs D who registered this book in the first place. As far as I can remember, I've never read anything by Helen Forrester, so I'll be happy to rectify that in due course. I can't guarantee when, of course, as my supply of books to be read is looking quite healthy at the moment . . . but you can never have too many - and I generally give priority to books that have come from other generous BookCrossers, so it might be sooner rather than later. Thank you!

A routine, mundane story of love, family, race relations and cultural differences in post-war Britain and India. It was first published in 1959 and is showing its age . . .
