The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

The Jaipur Trilogy: Book #2

By Alka Joshi
Narrated by: Sneha Mathan, Ariyan Kassam & Deepa Samuel
Length: 11 hours 8 minutes

The Secret Keeper of Jaipur

“At the grand opening of the Royal Jewel Cinema there are secrets left untold. Secrets about adoptions that happened, and those that didn't. 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. By the end of the first chapter there's a surprising collapse, and chapter two changes to the voice of the widow of a shepherd. The third narrator, the wife of a doctor, was the primary in Alka Joshi's first book, The Henna Artist, which I have not read but now want to. In the last few months I've read a number of books that are not my typical genre or setting. 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. ”
