    1939: Nerys Watkins leaves rural Wales to accompany her husband on a missionary posting to India. Travelling from lonely Ladakh, high in the Himalayas, Nerys discovers a new world in the city of Srinagar. Here, in the exquisite heart of Kashmir, the British live on carved wooden houseboats and dance, flirt and gossip as if there is no war. But the battles draw ever closer.

    Constance says: "Panoramic, Beautiful, Smart Historical Drama"

    What made the experience of listening to The Kashmir Shawl the most enjoyable?

    Truly vintage Rosie Thomas, a captivating story in a fabulous setting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were so real, so varied and so believable.
    The setting between rural Wales & vibrant India transported the reader.
    The thread of the story made it un-put downable.


    What about Nerys Hughes’s performance did you like?

    I read the book but was unsure of the pronounciations so her reading helped to bring it to life for me.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the description of the shawl being spread out & drifting with all the beautiful colours being seen for the first time.


    Any additional comments?

    I rated this book as highly as "Sun at midnight " & "White" which I have always considered superb stories.
