Very interesting read.

From the back cover:

Born in the year that India was partitioned, Sudha Koul grew up in a remote valley in Kashmir, 'the most beautiful place on earth'. Hers was a childhood of long, snowbound winters and vibrant, golden springs; a world of whispered folklore, exquisite gossamer-soft pashminas, lonely brides and fearless goddesses. In a household dominated by women, Dhanna, her grandmother, taught her the old ways.

But this idyll was not to last. Soon the outside world intruded on this peaceful, ancient valley, as religious militancy swept through the region and turned neighbour against neighbour. The old ways were changing, and the repercussions are still being felt across the world today...

The Tiger Ladies is a tale of lost innocence: of a girl turning into a woman, and a country tearing itself into pieces. In haunting, richly detailed prose, Sudha Koul takes you to the heart of this beautiful, troubled land. It is an unforgettable journey.
