From English winters to Indian summers. From the cold streets of modern Britain to the glamorous, turbulent and impassioned world of 1940's Mumbai. Each year, Sita makes a mysterious journey to the Mausoleum, the place of dark memories and warped beginnings. She goes to spy on Emily and Champa, the strange 'guardians' she once escaped, and on whom she had taken a daring revenge. This year proves to be fatefully different... This year, the terrible secrets of the past are starting to emerge; secrets that inexorably link the three women to each other, to the grey-eyed stranger Kala, and to an altogether different world - the glittering, violent and passionate world of 1940's Mumbai. Ravinder Randhawa's women, caught in a desperate fight for survival, cross taboos and forbidden lines in this richly plotted novel, imbued with fascinating historical detail, and the beauties of place and period. Readers of modern and historical novels alike will enjoy Randhawa's evocative portrait of the compelling relationship between Britain and India, which continues to enthrall and engage us.
