My rating: 2 of 5 stars

As a very young child, I remember seeing this book on my mother’s bookshelf. The exotic authors name and the title promised a great story within the covers, however I remember being so disappointed that the book was for adults and had no pictures! How could anyone read a book without pictures? Now as an adult I’ve read the book and conjured my own pictures in my mind of Kashmir and the people. It tells of one woman’s desire to live amongst the local people and how she struggled to fit in and be accepted.
