As I said in the introduction of my Interview with this talented writer, it’s as if she hand picks each word as she writes.  Elegantly written prose, she scrapes the words down to their most beautiful meaning. She knows her characters and locations and wears them like a second skin.  Janet Macleod Trotter is a meticulous researcher so before she ever begins writing a story she researches…for months.  The result is great story-telling.

This book takes us to India and submerges us in the sights, sounds, smells, and history of the country.  Mysterious, passionate, and spiritual.
Two sisters live an idyllic life on their father’s tea plantation until tragedy strikes.  They are unceremoniously ripped from their beloved land and end up in the streets of Tyneside, England.  A rough, industrial town steeped in poverty.  The reader, fascinated by their life in south Asia, has settled in their chair expecting more of this exotic place. But, like the sisters, are ripped away, landing in the stinking, rainy streets of a town in England that doesn’t care if they survive or not.

Yes, this is a good story; I loved every minute of it. But what makes a good story?  Great writing!  Janet has such a flare, has such great instincts and weaves love, tragedy, adventure, and passion into her stories.  I highly recommended this author and this book!
