Karma: a novel in verse

Cathy Ostlere

from Penguin.com (USA)...

It is 1984, and fifteen-year-old Maya is on her way to India with her father. She carries with her the ashes of her mother, who has recently committed suicide, and arrives in Delhi on the eve of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi's assassination - one of the bloodiest riots in the country's history.

Then Maya is separated from her father and must rely upon the help of a mysterious, kindhearted boy, Sandeep, to safely reunite them. But as her love for Sandeep begins to blossom, Maya will have to face the truth about her painful adolescence . . . if she's ever to imagine her future.

In this gorgeous, haunting portrait of love, loss, and growing up, Cathy Ostlere - in masterful strokes of verse - has created a simply unforgettable read.
