Secrets about marriages arranged to build dynasties and those to save face. And a man who was a nobody as a boy is going by a different name, and some recognize him and others either don't or choose not to.

This glimpse into India, with not a single white character in the whole of the book, made me want to see and touch all the fabrics, eat all the foods, and peep into these amazing intertwined lives to see what lies beneath the surface. ”Lisa, Bookmarks
