I loved this book. I started off by being drawn to the cover and then I was drawn into the sites and sounds and smells of India. I have never been to India and probably never will. But I can imagine the heat and the flies and the smell of the rubbish and then to be able to smell the jasmine and all the spices.
This was a book of escapism, not just for the characters but for the reader and that is what books should be about. It was one of those books that just kept me reading.
Harrish Hope and Hope House were appropriately named. There was always hope in every situation. For a fifteen year old Rani carried a lot of baggage with her, how would many have coped after what had happened to her before Harrish found her and took her to his house.
Difficult to review without giving anything away. Just read it.
