A sparkling, moving, utterly charming new novel from the incomparable Sarah-Kate Lynch


Annie Jordan never wanted to go to India: there were too many poor people and the wrong sorts of smells. But when she ends up there anyway, to her great surprise it’s not the beggars that cling to her, it’s the lessons in life — courtesy of Heavenly Hirani and her beachside laughing yoga.

This endearing new novel by Sarah-Kate Lynch will reconfirm for her fans what a master she is of humour, exploring and understanding human experience and creating a vivid world around her utterly believable characters.

Reviews

An engaging read, this tale of one woman's transformation from emptiness to fulfilment pulls at the heart strings, and gives the reader an insight into the beauty and joy that can be found in India — even in the slums and in the houses of those who have virtually nothing.

Gisborne Herald

Take Eat, Pray, Love, add laughter and you have the beginnings of Sarah-Kate Lynch's latest offering. Set in India, the story follows Annie Jordan as she comes to learn that it's not just the beggars who cling to her in India, it's the lessons in life courtesy of Heavenly Hirani and her beachside laughing yoga. Funny, touching and a great reminder to breathe deeply and giggle during the festive season.
