Thrilled to review this one.
Jazz clubs, yacht clubs, aunty bars and a Bollywood beauty shadowed by her pet panther. This is glamorous Bombay in the late 1950s.
Love has blossomed in London between vivacious Scottish Presbyterian, Audrey, and clever Indian lawyer, Nat Zachariah.
When the happy newlyweds move to Nat’s exotic homeland and the striking family villa, Audrey must deftly navigate the rituals, secrets, intrigues and desires of his Bene Israel Jewish community, and adjust to perplexing new relatives.
In time, the past unlocks, old family ties unravel, lies are exposed and passions run high as different generations fall out. Then something shocking happens that undoes everything. Will this marriage that has crossed boundaries survive?
This is a beautifully written romance. I haven’t been able to put this one down. This is a book I devoured in just one sitting.
This book has made me death stare anyone who has tried to interrupt my reading of this one.
The characters in this book are in intriguing and have been given individual personality by the author. I have honestly felt as though I’ve known them.
This is a completely unique story, unlike anything I’ve read previously. This is the first book I’ve read by this author but it definitely won’t be the last.
I haven’t wanted to put Mango Bay down and it’s a book I definitely recommend.
