Beautifully written book. The detailed descriptions of characters and places left nothing to the imagination. I felt I was actually there, getting to know all the people involved and soaking in the Indian atmosphere. What a complete culture shock for the English people who moved there, but they coped with it all. Also author's research into life in Kashmir in two complete different eras was amazing.
This book was recommended by a friend. I usually do not enjoy books going from one era to another, but this one was very acceptable. Had to keep reading to find conclusion. Very well written and from the descriptions can imagine the city/towns written about. Highly recommended
Enjoyed this well written story very much . The skill of the author to run the past and the present together is most entertaining and enjoyable . Impressive research into the life style living of this particular period of time is incredible. Highly recommended . .
