This captivating novel, set in Mumbai, India, during the 1990s, offers a mindful look into the true distinction between lack and abundance.
After giving birth to a son, Kala is forced to give up her three-year-old daughter. Rather than the orphanage, as her husband demands, she abandons the toddler on the sidewalk with a pack of sleeping street children. Claire Kaine, a corporate executive working in India, is totally focused on her career until she sees the tiny homeless girl bathing in the hotel fountain. Her corporate façade begins to soften, and an unusual friendship develops.
Somewhere, just beyond her perception lies a mysterious truth that has eluded Morgan Hill.
Compelled by a stormy morning, she opens an heirloom trunk to find a well-worn quilt with Cuimhnigh embroidered in one corner, Gaelic for remember. Beneath the quilt she finds a pair of old glasses. When she slides the spectacles onto her face, colorful orbs of liquid light dance like swans to faint but oddly familiar melodies of clàrsach and balalaika. The glasses become part of her daily life, stowed at the ready in her wiry copper and silver streaked mane like reading glasses on the top of her head.
