Love's Garden by Nandini Bhattacharya

Literary Fiction and Creative Nonfiction

It is 1898. India is ruled by the British; India's women are ruled by British masters and Indian men. A desperate young widow makes a sacrifice to save herself from dishonor. She marries a stranger for security and shelter, but her damaged second family pays dearly for this bargain. An extraordinary atonement and strange liaisons in politics and love help her descendants heal from this traumatic private history. Love's Garden demonstrates the strength, resilience, and unbreakable spirit of mothers and daughters navigating layers of oppression, all while the sun is not-so-peacefully setting on British India. From $4.99 SHOP NOW
