If you loved Indian author Hema Macherla’s Breeze from The River Manjeera, you will love this, her second novel. Hema is a born story-teller who creates a plot and characters that keep you turning pages. The story starts when young Anjali escapes the funeral pyre, and with the help of her friend Saleem, makes an outrageously bold bid for freedom. Their plan goes horribly wrong but Anjali meets other ‘fallen women’ and together they try to free themselves from their fates. The background is India as Ghandi takes the stage, with Saleem becoming involved with the freedom fighters. The narrative is told alternatively by Anjali and Saleem.
An inspiration… this book has touched a chord among women not only from India but from the West and Europe.
