Présentation de l'éditeur :

Gloria Whelan's National Book Award–winning novel, chronicles the breathtaking story of a remarkable young woman who dares to defy fate.

Like many girls her age in India, thirteen–year–old Koly faces her arranged marriage with hope and courage. But Koly's story takes a terrible turn when in the wake of the ceremony, she discovers she's been horribly misled; her life has been sold for a dowry. In prose both graceful and unflinching, this powerful novel relays the story of a rare young woman, who even when cast out into a brutal current of time–worn tradition, sets out to forge her own remarkable future.Inspired by a newspaper article about the real thirteen–year–old widows in India today, this universally acclaimed best–selling novel, characterized by spare, lyrical language and remarkable detail, transports readers into the heart of a gripping tale of hope.

Ages 10+

Revue de presse :

This novel ran a serious risk of degenerating into didacticism and of patronising the poor of the subcontinent. Whelan avoids these twin traps by writing with genuine compassion and insight and by maintaining with great integrity the unclutteres structure of her narrative. --IBBY Link

It is an enchanting story that evokes a strong sense of place in a world so detached from our own. --inis

Sympathetic but never patronising, Whelan's vibrant telling poignantly evokes India's contrasting beauty and deprivation. Memorable absorbing and deeply affecting, it is a highly recommended read. --Carousel
