Nanda Kul is old. She has chosen to spend her last years high in the mountains, but her solitude is broken with the arrival of her great-granddaughter, Raka. Through the long hot summer, hidden dependencies and old wounds are uncovered, until tragedy becomes inevitable. From the author of CLEAR LIGHT OF DAY and IN CUSTODY.

Review:

"Anita Desai's lyrical yet pointed prose powerfully draws the portrait of a woman who can never blossom into her own in such an arid social landscape." ( World Literature Today)
