  • At the novel's heart is Sivakami, married at ten, widowed at eighteen. As her caste requires, her head is shaved and she wears widow's whites, and from dawn to dusk she cannot contaminate herself with human touch, not even to comfort her two small children. She dutifully follows custom, except for one defiant act: She returns to her husband's house to raise those children. Her servant, Muchami, bound by a very different set of caste rules, becomes her public face, and their singular bond holds three generations together through a turbulent half-century of social and political change.

    So far, I'm really enjoying it. The writing style is wonderful, and there are a lot of great cultural and social details.
