I found Rohatgis debut an insightful, layered and memorable coming of age tale. My heart ached for Leela and her struggle to reconcile her duties to family, community, and country with her wants and needs.

Leelas story carries on at a very quick pace, providing snapshots of life for a 16-year-old girl reuniting with her betrothed while working to complete her teaching certification during the British occupation in India. Rohatgi treats readers to glimpses of everyday moments all while expertly

This was an interesting novella, very well written and beautifully immersive in terms of day to day life in India in the early 20th century. There is, however, an assumption that the reader will be familiar with the political history of India during this era. I was not, and after being thoroughly confused on what was actually going on and why, I took a break from reading so I could instead read up on the history and politics. This did help, to a certain extent, but as is often the way with ...more

Why Im Choosing to DNF this Book

I have tried with this ARC. I have read it at different times of day, in different moods, and still cant seem to get into it. With it being a shorter read, I figured I would be able to fly through it.

The synopsis sounded promising. A group of women learning to become teachers wants to fight against the way their government segregates them. Were also reading about the British rule within India, and how India is fighting for their independence.

I love historical

Thanks to net galley for providing a copy.

This book didnt really work for me. The terrible kindle version was partly to blame. The formatting was horrible. Words ran into each other and paragraph breaks were all over the place.

As to the content of the novel, the narrator was a very weakly drawn character. The climax of the novel has her doing something very out of character when she was a very passive character throughout the story. For someone in 1905, the narrator often times talks like a

I was drawn to this book because of the time period and concept of this story. In the beginning, I did like this book. Leela and Maya were good. They did bring good voices to the story. Although, I do agree with another reader that it did appear as if the girls did follow the male voices a bit more stronger than I thought they would. Don't get me wrong as the girls did make a stand. However, it is interesting to show just how much family, tradition, and society plays a part into our actions and ...more

1905 and Indians are chafing under the British yoke of colonialism. Even in Chandrapur in Bengal, (always a hotbed of revolutionaries) change is coming. There is a strong awakening not just in politics but in empowerment of women and Leela and Maya who are fortunate in having a rather benevolent father are in the forefront of education for women.

The story plays out for both these women wanting and yearning for love and marriage - one within the boundaries of caste and religion and one distinctly

I was torn between giving it a three or four star, ended up going with the four. A 3.5 would have been more accurate on how I fell about the book.
This isn't a fast read and a couple of times I had to reread some pages. The author did transport the reader into a rather turbulent time in India and visualize the conflicting emotions of a young girl. Realize the girl is only 16 and husband to be has been absent for three years. In a lot of ways she had a sheltered life, no mother to prepare her and

I feel like Im learning a bit more about Indian culture and traditions with each book of Indian fiction I read. Every author has made it sound so beautiful I think its not just the authors appreciating the beauty, but the value the culture places on its beauty.

The authors conversational style made me feel like I was hanging out with Leela, Maya and their friends and family. Oddly enough, while I felt like we were nearly in the same room, I forgot that the story was taking place in 1905. Since I

Im a historical fiction buff but have never read about any of this before.
Russia and Japan are at war and Indian students in Japan were sent back to India.In 1905 Bengal was going to be divided into two by the British separating the Muslims and Hindus.
This is the story of leela living in a time of that partition and wanting to unite Hindus and Muslims.She is progressive and wants to do her part in uniting her country.
Loved the background history of that time.
Thankyou Netgalley for this arc.

I did not like this book at all. I understand that this was a tough time back in 1905. I was never aware of what happened during this time and I had no idea what was actually going on in this story. I needed a lot more background to know what was happening and why the plot of this story was important but I didn't understand it at all.

This story jumped around a lot and kept skipping many days and weeks and I kept becoming very confused and exhausted by the constant dialogue and many character

This is good overall. The author shows some solid talent, and readers will a little about Indian ways. I stayed mostly engaged, and enjoyed the emotions evoked throughout. I also liked the dialog. Probably best for historical fiction readers.

Thanks very much for the ARC for review!!
