Description

Facing the atrocities of World War One head on, Bissen Singh fights for the British Empire and is almost killed. He ends up in hospital in England where he meets a beautiful young nurse. But this can be no ordinary wartime romance between a soldier and a nurse. She is a white girl and he is an Indian Sikh. When , against all the odds, they fall in love Bissen must make a choice between his country and his love . . . Years later, Bissen is back in Amritsar, his home town, waiting desperately for news of his love. But Amritsar is now a city on the brink of revolution. A gang of teenage Indian boys are part of the increasingly violent rebellion against the British that Bissen once fought alongside. Every day things get more and more dangerous, and more and more innocent people are dragged into the fight for the city . . . This is an epic, powerful story, of love and life, war and death by award-winning author Bali Rai. Will the ghosts of the past help Amritsar to a peaceful future . . . ?
