Set predominantly in rural India, this gripping and passionate tale centres on Satyabhama, daughter of a Brahmin priest. When the young woman chooses to follow her own impulses rather than submit to stipulations of caste, which prevent her marrying the man she loves, her pursuit is assailed with agonizing hardship. Packed with vivid descriptions of Indian life, this book, from one of India’s most distinguished novelists, not only indicts an oppressive and unjust caste-system but offers a thrilling account of the voyage of self-discovery undertaken by one steadfast and courageous woman.
