Where the Secret Lies by Malika Gandhi (Review)

Where the Secret Lies by Malika Gandhi

Review by Alex Canton-Dutari
I must say that this book was a non-stopper for me. My opinion may be skewed as I have always been interested in Indian history and culture. It was clever by the author to write the name of both main characters as a chapter header to help readers keep track of the era each belonged to.
This book was written in the flowing English spoken by both the Indian immigrants in the UK and those English-speaking native Indians. It is an example of how the language varies from region to region in the world.
Re-incarnation may not be among most Westerners' beliefs. As I read this novel the possibility became quite believable.
I enjoyed Ms Gandhi's Freedom of the Monsoon, and after this one I am sure that I shall be on the lookout for more works.
