“A delicious book – highly recommended!! I have just finished reading this book in one sitting and feel as though I have been on a rollercoaster. The book leaves you feeling happy and sad. Banerji’s ability to empathise with the young children and the older women in the book is to be applauded.” Bookcrosser
Julia has given up on love in her middle age but is searching for a vanished brother and a lost identity. In doing so, she collides with Kitty, a woman of a different age, life-style and aspirations. The proof of Julia’s identity lies somewhere under Kitty’s home. The literal digging up of the past changes life for both of them, though what they eventually find is very different to their expectations. Ahead are surprises, conflict, terror, disappointment, love – and unexpected happiness.
Sometimes it is necessary for people to find the strength and courage to dig deep into themselves and their past. Those who do so will not always find what they expected and may even encounter disappointment and sadness. For the brave and the clear sighted, though, such fearless scrutiny can bring fulfilment, love and even happiness.
