I believe I'll begin with the things I loved What I Loved descriptions were stunningly beautiful it actually made me want to go visit India one day and I've never had that desireI love that I even cared for characters I didn't think I'd like Some of my favorite scenes were in the beginning when we see the real India and at the end when some beautiful letters are exchanged When I picked this up I'd been in the mood for a Trade Wind reread but then I saw this sitting on the shelf and I had to pick it up It started of not unlike Trade Wind but Laura wasn't uite as naive as the heroine in Trade WindOne thing that would have made it even better is this I would have loved an epilogue Not because there are loose ends but because I liked the character
