Like in the first two books, I skipped LOTS of sections that were about politics. They didn't seem to be important in regard to the story. I thought the ending was a bit abrupt with Lata deciding who she wanted to marry and boom.....that was it, quick wedding, no drama, the book ended.

One of the best books I've read! All three volumes kept me interested. It was sad that the book ended after 1400 somewhat pages. An interesting narrative about the many dimensions of diversity in Indian society in a historically and politically very important time during separation. A rainbow of many interesting live stories.....

Good conclusion to a wonderful book that tells the stories of interlinked families during India's birth. Wonderful.
