BRAHMACHARI

GUARDIAN

‘Beautifully written, richly atmospheric
and touchingly spiritual, this brief novel sparkles like a polished
gem’ DAILY MAIL

Tamarind never knew her Indian
mum, Chinty, who died soon after she was born. So when she arrives
at her ancestral home, a huge mansion in the Himalayas surrounded
by luxuriant gardens, she’s full of questions for her extended
family.

But instead of answers, she finds an ominous
silence – and a trickle of intriguing clues: an abandoned hut, a
friendly monkey, a glowing star ring, and a strange girl in the
garden who calls herself Ishta.

Slowly, Tamarind unravels
a mystery at the heart of who she is …

The second
novel by Jasbinder Bilan, author of the Costa
Award-winning Asha & the Spirit Bird and a rising star in
middle-grade fiction.

A beautiful and emotional family drama lightly woven with
magic, in a breathtaking Indian setting.
