I loved so many aspects of this book, and I see why she did things the way she did them...but the middle of the book was so frustrating to read sometimes.

I enjoyed reading about Amala, a young Indian woman living in England with her adopted British family, during the 1800's. I loved the romance until it was interrupted. As the story took obvious twists, it was still fun to see it flesh out in the end.
