    We buy from publishers and authorized distributors only. So buying from Bookish Santa ensure 100% genuine books only.

    Volume 1:

    ‘Set in post-independence India, the novel follows for eighteen months or so four linked families in Calcutta, the province of Purva Pradesh and its capital Brahmpur, and the cities—Delhi, Kanpur, Lucknow—trawled by the heroine’s mother in her search for a “suitable boy”… But the greatness of the novel, its unassailable truthfulness, owes less to research than to imagination, an instinctive knowledge of the human heart—with all its varieties of kindness and cruelty, its capacity for hurt… As with all the best books, one feels only dismay when the pages on the right of the tome start thinning out.’— The Observer

    Volume 2: 

    A student, a shoemaker, a poet: three suitors fight for Lata. Meanwhile India, newly-independent, is struggling through a time of great turmoil as the agony of partition still throbs in people's minds - driving a wedge through friendships, families and political unions. Now at the beginning of a new era, the country faces its first general election, and a sixth of the world's population faces its chance to map its own destiny.

    A shadow of doubt has fallen over Lata's first suitor, the second quietly presses his case, the third dreams of her 'in his head' but still looks for courage. Fortunately, Mrs Rupa Mehra's attentions are diverted by the birth of savita's baby, an augury surely of a happy ending.

    Volume 3: 

    The story that began with a wedding ends with a wedding, as the complex web of character and plot is pulled together in its final resolution.
