Description

'Few novels are life-changing; this one just might be' Daily Mail Leaving home is one thing. Surviving is another. In 1940s Lahore, the Punjab, two brothers and two sisters are beaten and browbeaten into 'good children'. Each has a destiny to fulfil. Sully and Jakie will be doctors, Mae and Lana dutiful wives. But Sully falls for an unsuitable girl, Jakie an unsuitable man. Mae and Lana disgrace themselves and disobey. Rebelling is easy when you're far from home. But the ties that bind them across cultures, continents and time can never be broken. And when, decades later, death draws them back, it will affect them in ways they never imagined.
