From the bestselling author of The Space Between Us comes an emotionally charged story of life, death, despair, and hope, and the lengths we will go to in the name of love.
When Frank and Ellie Benton lose their only child, seven-year-old Benny, to a sudden illness, the perfect life they'd built is shattered. But an unexpected job half a world away offers them an opportunity to start again. Life in Girbaug, India, holds promise--and peril--when Frank befriends Ramesh, a bright, curious boy who quickly becomes the focus of the grieving man's attentions. Haunted by memories of his dead son, Frank is consumed with making his family right--a quest that will lead him down an ever-darkening path that will have stark repercussions.
Umrigar is the author of three novels, If Today Be Sweet, The Space Between Us and Bombay Time, and a memoir, First Darling of the Morning: Selected Memories of an Indian Childhood.
