Tonight I am starting this Lisa Tucker book based on what I read from a friend's blog. I have spent way too much time in India lately so this seems like a nice change of pace for me.
With that said, Thrity Umrigar's memoir was really very good! All lovers of India based stories should grab her stuff up.
My Rating for The Promised World: 4/5
This was a very gripping story with lots of suspense. I did have difficulty liking the individual characters, especially Billy. It was an emotional read for me, but I would suggest it to others...it was worth it.
