I'm 1/2 way through (it's taking a while to read as last week I was busy with holiday stuff) and am still waiting for *something* to happen. So far the best part has been the wonderful descriptions of India. I'm not too thrilled with the storyline though. It's just a little bit slow and plodding for me. I still have 1/2the book to read so it may change but as of now I'm really surprised as I thought for sure I'd love this one!!
I'm really surprised I loved loved loved this book, especially the wedding trip and the Suttee rescue. The last part is a bit slower so be warned.
One of the things about Kaye's writing is her knowledge of Eastern cultures and her ability to show to us how different Eastern and Western cultures are - not that they're wrong just different and we'll never see eye to eye.
