Daughters of Partition16 year old Taji Kaur is living a blissful life – after a grand and lavish wedding ceremony she has her first baby and is expecting the second in August of 1947 In the backdrop the British Raj in India is coming to an end and a line of partition is being proposed between India and Pakistan Taji and her husband Indian Sikhs find themselves on the wrong side of the border Amidst the ravages of riots and bloodshed they make a desperate attempt to cross a mountainous region to reach India; but the journey is far from straightforward This is a heart wrenching real life story of borders civil unrest loss migration religion and incredible bravery told through the eyes of one woman who lived through these tragedies This book caught me in two ways The first is rather straight forward for a first novel or any novel really it is exceptionally well written The pace is perfect the prose is delicate and beautifully thought through and the story is simultaneously lifting gripping and shockingThe second bit that really shook me was in finding out how little I knew about the partition of India and how horrendous a time it was for the people caught on the wrong side of a line drawn by civil servants and politiciansI strongly recommend this to anybody It is not an historical novel but you will learn a lot of history it is not a love story but the way love appears is real and shocking and it is not sad but at times you find yourself crying It is a fantastic first novel and I can't wait for Fozia Raja to write another one
