Jana Bibi

I have fallen in love with Jana Bibi. I normally read more nonfiction than fiction, but a friend recommended Jana Bibi's Excellent Fortunes. Set in the early 1960s, Jana Bibi is a woman more at home in India than Scotland her ancestral home. She inherits her grandfather's house and becomes part of the community. As the story progresses you meet the neighbors, deal with the crisis of the impending dam and more. A charming tale that would appeal to readers of Major Pettigrew, The Guernsey Literary Society and the Number One Detective Agency novels. Love Potion Number 10 is the second Jana Bibi tale.
