I finished this book with a lump in my throat. The vast gulf between India's poor and rich is highlighted by Will Randall's experiences, but he never becomes maudlin, inspired as he is by the cheerfulness and spirit of the slum children he is teaching. There are lessons here for us all.
I much prefered this to his first book, Solomon Time, although I enjoyed that book for its content, I didn't like his style too much. In Indian Summer he seems to have matured, become more international, less "English", and I prefered his viewpoint this time. Less of the self-deprecating humor, but still very modest.
I defy anyone not to be emotionally drawn into this warming but heartbreaking story.
