A lovely book, well researched and offering a real flavour of Kashmir, both in the present day, and back in the wartime years of the 1940s. There are 2 time frames here. The present day, when Mair from the Welsh valleys conceives the wish to vist the part of Kashmir where her grandparents were missionarie; and the story from the war years, when Nerys and her husband participate in long-gone ways of life as members of the British community there. Mair's involvement in her grandmother's past, her increasing desire to unpick the mysteries surrounding aspects of Nery's life, are always believable, the coincidences never far-fetched. These are characters to believe in, a story-line to relish, and a tale to become absorbed in over several winter evenings.… (més)

"Sun at Midnight" by Rosie Thomas was the first novel that I have read by this author. The plot started off fairly well. The characters were well defined and had a realistic feel to them. The setting, especially once the plot moved to the Antarctic was simply amazing! I actually envision myself there as I was reading this interesting novel. The reason for the 4 star rating versus a 5 star rating, towards the end, the novel dragged on a bit. The ending was also a bit predictable and not very realistic. Overall, I would recommend adding this novel to your tbr list.… (més)
