Download Things to leave behind ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub A rich panoramic historical novel shows you Kumaon and the Raj as you have never seen themIt is 1856 in picturesue Kumaon History has already begun its steady march Six native women clad in black and scarlet pichauras huddle around Naineetal Lake attempting to cleanse it of threatening new influences For these are the days of Uppe. Based in hills of kumaon and spanning three generations of Indians and their British rulers it should have been pleasantly enjoyable Instead it managed to irk me by meandering aimlessly A description would commence and then be left abruptly with no correlation to the story There are puerile repetitions and stereotypical simplifications There is no story as such however book talks of a royal physician his wife his nephew nephew s wife nephew s crush who is British wife s mother and father who is a surveyor mother s uncle and aunt and her mother I know you can t make any sense Neither could I Going by the pedigreed appreciations on the jacket it s entirely my fault that I couldn t enjoy the book
