Votre note
The moving story of one woman's painful journey of self-discovery, Ancient Promises is about a marriage, a divorce and motherhood. It is about why we love and lose, sometimes seeming to have little control over our destinies. Young and vulnerable Janu gave up Arjun, her first great love, to enter into an arranged marriage. Years later she is miserable, having been gradually shut out by the coldness of her husband's family, and his indifference to her and their daughter's needs. Finally she flees to England to escape the loveless union - but at what price to herself and those she loves? Janu's journey, though long and traumatic, makes her stronger and eventually brings her peace. For a long time she believes that because she abandoned her marriage she does not deserve to be wholly happy. Is she right? Does happiness come in separate bundles, allocated a piece at a Time, or can she make, a new life for herself away from Kerala, together with everything in the world that is precious to her: her first and greatest love Arjun and her beloved daughter?
