    I just could not put this book down I was in love with it from the very start What Ramnanan does is weave many different perspectives into the story and you feel like you are getting a bit of everyone equally, although really, Vimla and Krishna are at the centre of it The story is written phonetically and I really felt was if I was transported to Chance, Trinidad The dialogue bits were my favorite because of that, but even if some sections were heavy on the dialogue, Ramnanan somehow is abl I just could not put this book down I was in love with it from the very start What Ramnanan does is weave many different perspectives into th...

    Ramnanan transports us back to 1970s Trinidad with rich characters It s the coming of age story about Vimla, a young girl who went from community darling to shunned and disgraced when her secret romance with is discovered Star crossed lovers struggle against family expectations and somewhere along the way, Vimla must determine what she really wants The descriptions are vivid you can feel the languid heat and the scent of spices and flowers, but for me, the dialect and dialogue were the novel Ramnanan transports us ...
