A fast paced story of a young English widow's struggles to raise her children while living frugally in a dilapidated house in rural Kashmir northern India. Oblivious to the timeless animosities between local clans, Sophie unwittingly alienates all the local villagers; and sets the scene for the violent tragedy that blows apart everyone's world.
This book is really a memoir of a widow and her two children living a simple life in Kashmir. The British woman is initially oblivious to local culture and politics which leads to misunderstandings and near tragedy. When she better understands she is forced by circumstances to leave. However, because of her experience she does not retreat to life in England but goes on to continue to explore the world and learn from it. An interesting perspective on colonialism.
