Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator Deepti Gupta is a wonderful choice for this powerful historical novel about the violent partition of India. Through her delivery, listeners feel sympathy for young Deepa, who is caught in a moment of personal and national confusion. Eventually, Gupta moves us from India in the late 1940s to present-day Atlanta. Her narration is a gentle entry into a bloody past that will be especially illuminating for those who are unfamiliar with this period of history. She shifts between male and female characters, Indians and Americans, keeping the listener grounded throughout. Gupta also creates sympathy for Shan, Deepa's estranged granddaughter, who takes over the second half of the story. M.R. 2022 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
