      Wow, what a book; I could not put this down! I just kept reading and enjoying the vivid imagery and page-turning suspense in the journey of tenant farmers in India. I could almost see and smell the brilliance of the villages and people in this story. Told from the female perspective this will definitely give you a glimpse into the life of others.
