But Amritsar is now a city on the brink of revolution. A gang of teenage Indian boys are part of the increasingly violent rebellion against the British that Bissen once fought alongside. Every day things get more and more dangerous, and more and more innocent people are dragged into the fight for the city ...This is an epic, powerful story, of love and life, war and death by award-winning author Bali Rai. Will the ghosts of the past help Amritsar to a peaceful future...?
