***THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER***FOUR GENERATIONS. THREE SISTERS. ONE DIVIDED NATION. 'Remarkable, haunting, symphonic' New York TimesTricked aboard a boat to East Africa, Pirbhai is only thirteen when he is forced by the British into labouring on the railway. Under sweltering heat, hungry and frightened, he commits a terrible act just to survive. He will never tell a soul, even when he meets Sonal, a fierce, loving woman with whom he starts a family in hope of a better life. But their granddaughters come of age in a divided nation. Latika falls headlong into the student protest movement, Mayuri's ambitions take her far from home, while Kiya's friendship with a Black Ugandan boy threatens them both. Finally forced to flee, the family scatters across the world. They take with them a favourite rolling pin, a handful of photos, and a secret - that one day, will help them find each other again. 'Vast and intricate, alight with love and contained fury' Megha Majumdar, author of A Burning
