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. Breaking through the fake veneers of Mumbai’s most powerful, Karuna’s story exposes a world of pretension and deceit. In doing so she rediscovers the woman who was swept away by it all. Behind her glamorous persona emerges a warrior–a grown woman who had to lose everything to have it all.
