Sarah Macdonald swore she would never return to India after a backpacking trip in her 20s. 10 years later, she ventures back in the name of love. Her fiance is working as a correspondent for the Australian Broadcasting Company and Macdonald moves to Delhi with him. The most interesting parts of this book are her day to day experiences, both traveling and with her local friends and home experiences. She spends a lot of time looking into religions, which were both some of the entertaining passages and the most boring too. I would recommend this to many people who had traveled to India or contemplating a longer stay in this part of the world. The other possible downside is that this is getting a little dated as it is set in 2000-2001.
