Historical fiction

Mala's home in Delhi is empty, save for a lifetime of sketches left behind by her late husband, Asad and the memories they conjure. Sifting through them on restless afternoons and sleepless nights, Mala summons the ghosts of their past. As their story unfolds, others emerge: of Sara, their daughter, who, unable to commit to a cause that will renew her faith in her parents' ideals and her own, embarks on a search for purpose that brings to Ahmedabad, the venue of recent carnage; of Yasmin, whom Sara meets across a lately created 'border', a survivor of mayhem, secretly dreaming of college and the miraculous return of her missing brother, Akbar; of innumerable other lives trapped in limbo.
