it was amazing

If I had no other reason to read this book, I would have read it because it is a sort of flip-side to Godden's previous novel, Coromandel Sea Change. And I really do love Rumer Godden, whose books I have been reading since I learned to read (if you haven't read her children's novels, you should. Your life will become less joyless when you do.) Anyway. Same background, some of the same characters...but a very different book. This is a tightly-written, fast-moving, beautiful novel...and it made the Hindu faith breathe for me.

I'll say it again. A beautiful, beautiful novel.
