Summary 

From the bestselling author of Trail of Broken Wings comes an epic story of the unrelenting force of love, the power of healing, and the invincible desire to dream.

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past.

Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.


Excerpt 

Prologue 

Twenty percent of women miscarry. Eighty percent of them lose the baby in the first twelve weeks of their pregnancy. If you are over thirty years old then you have a twelve percent chance of miscarrying. Every year of age added after that increases your chances by percentage points.

I can recite these statistics and more by heart. I have researched them endlessly since we first started trying. That was over five years ago. Since then I have spent countless hours in the library and on the internet hoping for a new study or drug that improves the odds.  But the results are always the same - for every baby born there are many that never reach gestation. For every woman who juggles a child in her arms there is one who yearns for the cry of a child to comfort. For every family that fills a home there are those who will never become parents.

Twenty percent of women miscarry. Eighty percent of them lose the baby in the first twelve weeks of their pregnancy. If you are over thirty years old then you have a twelve percent chance of miscarrying. Every year of age added after that increases your chances by percentage points.
