For the first time — simultaneous book publication, radio broadcast, and Between the Covers Collection audiobook release! What the Body Remembers is set in the state of Punjab just before Partition.
This stunning first novel tells the story of Roop, the young and beautiful second wife of a wealthy Sikh, kind yet uncompromisingly traditional. Domestic politics become as dangerous as national politics, and, like the larger Partition, the division of the household creates new anguish. Finally Roop discovers in herself the self-preserving ambition of the woman who was her mortal enemy and is now almost her guiding spirit.
