(From the publisher):
New Delhi, 1949. Joanna Shaw runs a refuge for girls from the city's red-light district. She is here when the news arrives: her husband's plane has gone down in the mountains of Kashmir. Certain that Aidan, a journalist, is still alive, she enlists the aid of his best friend, Lawrence. Together with ten-year-old Kamla, the half Chinese, half Sikh orphan she has rescued from a brothel, the three begin a journey into the treacherous heart of the Himalayas, where Aidan seems to have vanished without a trace.
For Joanna, it is a search for the truth about the husband she thought she knew. For Lawrence, it is a quest for redemption. And for the turquoise-eyed Kamla, it is an odyssey into the tantalizing mystery of her birth.
