On the outskirts of a small town in Bengal, a family live in solitude in their vast new home. A widower struggles with his feelings for an unmarried cousin, his motherless daughter runs wild with an orphan of unknown caste and the family matriarch goes slowly mad, confined to her own room.

I couldn't get into this book at all and the only interesting part was the old woman with Tourette's Syndrome style outbursts. It was funny in a tragic sort of way-you laughed and then felt guilty for laughing at her as it is a horrible illness to suffer from.

I said my TBR pile was long - 7 years later I finally picked it up! Sorry I hadn't meant to keep it so long.
This was a strange book, for the most part I enjoyed it but something about it made it quite a slow read. I really enjoyed the characters relationships and histories which were explored through the three different generations. I found the mother's struggle with her son's wife and her gradual demise the most interesting part of the story, the end section was a bit twee but I forgave them.

Released 2 yrs ago (7/27/2017 UTC) at Aurora: P and 0 Cruise ship in Southampton, Hampshire United Kingdom


I was planning on leaving this in Norway but on our final day it was raining so much that I only ventured off of the ship for 10 mins and quickly ran back to the dry ship. So this was left on the table where fellow cruise members shared books and I noticed later in the day it'd been snapped up. Hoping this will find its way some place new.
