Product Description

THREE SISTERS. THEIR UNBREAKABLE BOND. AND A NATION ABOUT TO BE BORN.

Here is a river...

Here is a village...

Here is a grand old mansion...

Here is the country that contains them all...

India. August, 1946. Everything is about to change.

Priya, Jamini and Deepa, Dr Nabakumar Ganguly's daughters, live in Ranipur, Bengal, safe from the rising turbulence in the country. When their father is killed on Direct Action Day, their world turns upside-down.

Priya, the youngest, intelligent and idealistic, is determined to follow in her father's footsteps and become a doctor, no matter how difficult. She is fortunate to have the support of zamindar Somnath Chowdhury, her father's best friend. Jamini, devout, dutiful and talented, helps her mother stitch kanthas to make ends meet. Hungering for affection even as she is resentful of her sisters, she nurses a secret desire. Beautiful Deepa, the eldest, all set to marry well, falls in love with Raza, Youth Leader at the Muslim League, and must face the consequences.

When India is partitioned, the sisters find themselves separated from one another, afraid of what will happen to not only themselves, but also each other. It is only then that they understand what it means to be independent, and the price one has to pay for it.

Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's powerful new novel is a moving story of loyalty and love, nationhood and sisterhood, set against India's independence movement, at once exhilarating and devastating.

Loved loved!

Really enjoyed this one!
I breezed through the book cause I got invested in the characters so early. I love how each chapter is written from one sister’s perspective. So well written and weaved, I was engaged in every page.

Love the book binding, paper and font size. Such a good size, length and so nice to hold while reading.

Highly recommend this! Please go read.

Sisterhood, love, betrayal & patriotism!

This book is one of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's best works yet. Her portrayal of the many strong female characters in the pre-independence era is absolutely remarkable. It is a powerful, strong & captivating story of sisterhood, love, betrayal and patriotism!
