Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A wonderful, beautifully told, love story of an illicit affair in Ladakh (a region west of Tibet) in the 50s which resulted in a mixed-race, illegitimate daughter whom we follow in the 90s. There is some terrific cultural detail in a splendid read.

If you like Liz Harris you might also like to read books by Jodi Picoult, Linda Gillard and Christina Courtenay.

Synopsis

The Road Back by Liz Harris

When Patricia accompanies her father, Major George Carstairs, on a trip to Ladakh, north of the Himalayas, in the early 1960s, she sees it as a chance to finally win his love. What she could never have foreseen is meeting Kalden - a local man destined by circumstances beyond his control to be a monk, but fated to be the love of her life. Despite her father's fury, the lovers are determined to be together, but can their forbidden love survive? A wonderful story about a passion that crosses cultures, a love that endures for a lifetime, and the hope that can only come from revisiting the past.

Reviews
