Description

Engaging writing and a delightful protagonist bring a 1960s Indian village to life.

Basanta longs for the beautiful ring worn by her young mistress, but when it is finally hers, she realizes that it's not the wonderful possession she expected. Increasingly aware of the struggles of her less privileged friends, Lali and Bala, she finds a way to improve their lives and entertain their community and the beautiful ring takes on new meaning.

Farhana Zia's engaging novel--filled with a cast of distinct, endearing characters and humorous, thought-provoking events--provides an insightful look at relative privilege and opportunity.
