A️lka Joshi does it again! Within the first few moments we are whisked away to India immersed in the lives of Lakshmi and Malik. This time our focus shifts slightly and we learn more about nomadic life in the Himalayas with new character Nimmi as well as about Lakshmi’s healing practice in Shimla as well as palace life back in Jaipur. Lakshmi presses Malik into an apprenticeship in the city taking him away from his new love Nimmi and thrusting him right into a hornet’s nest. He is learning the building trade where the palace is building a new theater and he learns not everything is on the up and up.
We once again see Lakshmi expertly balance the lives of those around her, pulling them out of scrape and scandal with her signature unflappable way. The snippets of Indian culture and history are intoxicating and easy to immerse yourself in. If she wrote 100 stories about these people, I would read them all.
Thanks to libro.fm for a copy of this ALC. All opinions above are my own.
Look at me with three audiobooks so far this month, who am I? Well, first libro.fm is fabulous and second, I’m back to traveling and audiobooks are great for planes, trains and taxis as I fling across the world. Suggest an audiobook I should add to my TBR!
