If you enjoyed “The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton, you’ll find this book a great read. Moving between the early 1940’s and current time in the mountains of Northern India and Kashmir the story immediately engulfs you in the lives of two sets of characters, their lives and friends. By the time it's all over you feel like you know them all very well and have shared in all their ups and downs. The contrast of the regions between the early 40’s and now is also captivating. Picture yourself in a remote village with the Himalayas as a back drop. Priceless!
