Synopsis

A story of forbidden love that echoes across generations - from the prize-winning author of The Year of the Runaways.



'A gorgeous, gripping read' Kamila Shamsie

'A multi-generational masterpiece' Daily Mail



* A Book of the Year for The Times, Guardian and Daily Telegraph *



Mehar, a young bride in rural Punjab, is trying to discover the identity of her new husband. It is 1929, and she and her sisters-in-law - married to three brothers in a single ceremony - spend their days hard at work on the family farm, sequestered from contact with the men. When Mehar develops a theory as to which of them is hers, a passion is ignited that will put more than one life at risk.



Spiralling around Mehar's story is that of a young man who in 1999 flees from England to the deserted sun-scorched farm. Can a summer spent learning of love and of his family's past give him the strength for the journey home?
