The Wheel of Surya: Anniversary Edition (Paperback)Jamila Gavin (author)
The first instalment of Gavin's seminal Surya trilogy follows young Marvinder and Jaspal's journey from an India locked in the civil war of Partition to post-war England.
A beautiful new edition of the first volume in the Surya Trilogy by Whitbread award-winning author Jamila Gavin.
India, August 1947: Fleeing from their burnt-out village as civil war rages in the Punjab, Marvinder and Jaspal are separated from their mother, Jhoti. Marvinder has already saved her brother's life once, but now they both face a daily fight for survival.
Together they escape across India and nearly halfway around the world to England, to find a father they hardly know in a new, hostile culture...
A powerful story of culture, class, family and faith set against the backdrop of Indian independence and the Partition of India and Pakistan. Perfect for fans of The Bone Sparrow, Morris Gleitzman's Once, and Katherine Rundell's The Wolf Wilder.
