The book would have been no remarkable literary achievement in itself, had it not been a truthful and representative depiction of a shocking reality most of us are not even aware of.
If you forgive the author her sometimes clumsy style and focus on the story, you get an insight into the Indian community in the UK and especially the perpetual drama of young girls whose families put cast, pride and the family's 'good name' before their daughters' happiness or even lives.
This is a must read and an eye-opener for all of us, free women, who sometimes forget to count our blessings
