Présentation de l'éditeur :

Monsoon Memories is an unforgettable journey through a mesmerizing, passionate land of contrasts – with a family whose story will touch your heart.

Renita D’Silva has been described as the Indian Jodi Picoult, and anyone who enjoys the emotional drama of Jodi Picoult, Diane Chamberlain, Heather Gudenkauf or Dorothy Koomson will love Monsoon Memories.

Discover a major new talent and one of the best debut novels of 2013.

“English rain smelt and tasted of nothing at all. It had none of the fury, the passion of the monsoons. Instead, it was weak; half-hearted.”

Exiled from her family in India for more than a decade, Shirin and her husband lead a comfortable but empty life in London.

Memories of her childhood – exotic fragrances, colours, stifling heat and tropical storms – fill Shirin with a familiar and growing ache for the land and the people that she loves.

With the recollections though, come dark clouds of scandal and secrets. Secrets that forced her to flee her old life and keep her from ever returning.

Thousands of miles away, in Bangalore, the daughter of Shirin’s brother discovers a lost, forgotten photograph. One that has escaped the flames.

Determined to solve the mystery of an aunt she never knew, Reena’s efforts will set in place a chain of events that expose the painful trauma of the past and irrevocably change the path of the future.

Praise for Monsoon Memories

'Monsoon Memories by Renita D’Silva is an honest, captivating peek at the human heart, the haunting power of memories and the fierce power of truth. Beautifully written, Monsoon Memories is an engaging, thought-provoking story that will remain with you long after the final page.
Heather Gudenkauf

'A delightful story, with riveting characters and a mystery guaranteed to tease and tantalise the reader right till the end. And what a feast for the senses - Renita D'Silva is a genius at evoking the sounds, sights and aromas of India. A major new talent - I can't wait for her next novel.'
Linda Kavanagh
