The Folded Earth: A Novel by Anuradha Roy
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I wasn't in the mood to read a book about India, but this book is so well written, I enjoyed it from the first page to the last. In the beginning of the story, Maya is remembering the death of her husband and her subsequent move to a tiny Himalayan village to live peacefully. She teaches and manages a factory, and types up manuscripts for her influential neighbor in the evenings. Maya soon learns the world intrudes even in the most remote villages, and the reader learns how everyone is tied together and why Maya is unable to escape her past.
