When Rani & Sukh fall in love, they have no idea of the terrible consequences their relationship will have on their families who fell out over forty years ago and still resent each other.
' Man, she's wicked like one of them Bollywood actresses...'
Sukh reckons Rani is the most fanciable girl in school. She's got just the kind of look he goes for...
Rani can't stop thinking about Sukh either. Talk about fit. Beautiful amber-brown eyes, like pools you could jump into...
But Rani is a Sandhu, and Sukh is a Bains-and sometimes names can lead to terrible trouble...
A powerful and gripping novel that sweeps the reader from modern-day Britain to the Punjab in the 1960s and back again in a ceaseless cycle of tragedy and conflict.
NOTE : The back cover has the publisher's warning "Not suitable for younger readers"
NOTE : Rani and Sukh, both 16, have sex quite early on in their relationship, and Rani becomes pregnant. When her affair with Sukh becomes known to her family, they incarcerate her in her bedroom with the intention of not letting her out until they have married her off. The book culminates when Sukh is stabbed and killed by Divy, Rani's older brother.
