Throughout her life, Sathi has carried the burden of her grief and guilt over the death of her own mother while giving birth to her. But then she starts investigating - and unearths hidden documents that suggest her mother did not die in childbirth after all. This shocking discovery sends Sathi to India, the land of her forefathers, on a trail which opens up a world of intrigue she had no idea existed. What secrets are her family keeping from her? What is she to make of the charming but infuriating Zakiy, who is not quite the simple young man he claims to be? And what really happened to her beloved Amma? This page-turner of a story from a talented young novelist is a wonderful read from start to finish.
