Summary

A brother and sister flee their war-torn home during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947 to try and find the father they barely know who is living in England.

India, August 1947
Fleeing from their burnt-out village as civil war rages in the Punjab, Marvinder and Jaspel are separated from their mother, Jhoti. Marvinda has already saved her brother's life once, but now they both face a daily struggle for survival.

Together they escape across India and nearly halfway across the world to England, to find a new father they hardly know in a new, hostile culture ...

This is the first part of the Surya trilogy.

Runner-up for the Guardian Children's Fiction Award.
