    The novel traces the princess Panchaali's life, beginning with her birth in fire and following her spirited balancing act as a woman with five husbands who have been cheated out of their father's kingdom. Panchaali is swept into their quest to reclaim their birthright, remaining at their side through years of exile and a terrible civil war involving all the important kings of India.

    Richard says: "timeless story"
    "A meditation on the Mahabharata"
    Overall

    I picked this up because I am a fan of the Indian classic, and it didn't disappoint. The narration complemented the story perfectly , and my heart was broken at the end. The story, told from Draupadi's perspective, fascinated and it serves as an enlightened counterpoint to the original text. I will be looking for more from this author, and from this narrator.
