China Room : The heartstopping and beautiful novel, longlisted for the Booker Prize 2021
A story of forbidden love that echoes across generations – from the prize-winning author of The Year of the Runaways.
‘A gorgeous, gripping read’ Kamila Shamsie
‘A multi-generational masterpiece’ Daily Mail
* A Book of the Year for The Times, Guardian and Daily Telegraph *
Mehar, a young bride in rural Punjab, is trying to discover the identity of her new husband. It is 1929, and she and her sisters-in-law – married to three brothers in a single ceremony – spend their days hard at work on the family farm, sequestered from contact with the men. When Mehar develops a theory as to which of them is hers, a passion is ignited that will put more than one life at risk.
Spiralling around Mehar’s story is that of a young man who in 1999 flees from England to the deserted sun-scorched farm. Can a summer spent learning of love and of his family’s past give him the strength for the journey home?
