Résumé

16-year-old Taji Kaur is living a blissful life - after a grand and lavish wedding ceremony she has her first baby and is expecting the second in August of 1947. In the backdrop, the British Raj in India is coming to an end and a line of partition is being proposed between India and Pakistan. Taji and her husband, Indian Sikhs, find themselves on the wrong side of the border. Amidst the ravages of riots and bloodshed, they make a desperate attempt to cross a mountainous region to reach India ; but the journey is far from straightforward.

Biographie de Fozia Raja

Fozia Raja is an author, creative writer, and corporate Human Resources professional. She was born and brought up in Manchester, UK, where she has fond memories of pursuing her passion for reading - carrying a heavy backpack to the local library each Saturday to pick out her next seven books for the week ahead. She has vivid childhood memories of the stories shared by her grandmother about her surviving the partition of India.
Fozia would listen to these historical narratives in rapt attention — motivating her later in life to complete a master's degree in Creative Vriting. Her grandmother's wish that Fozia "write the story of my life" came to its fruition with this publishing. Fozia is an avid reader, foodie and gym-goer ; and when she's not travelling, London is home.
