A novel about Mumbai's elite, as seen through the wide eyes of a young woman, from one of India's most renowned bestselling authors.
Shedding her middle-class past, Karuna has found her place in high society. But with her upward climb came many lows. Now battered, but not beaten, she seeks to heal her soul by sharing her story, offering a rare glimpse at an all-consuming world of power and greed.
