Publisher's Summary

From the acclaimed author of Teatime for the Firefly comes the story of a man with dreams of changing the world, who finds himself changed by love

India, 1870s. In a tiny village where society is ruled by a caste system and women are defined solely by marriage, young Biren Roy dreams of forging a new destiny. When his mother suffers the fate of widowhood - shunned by her loved ones and forced to live in solitary penance - Biren devotes his life to effecting change.

Biren's passionate spirit blossoms as wildly as the blazing flame trees of his homeland. With a law degree, he goes to work for the government to pioneer academic equality for girls. But in a place governed by age-old conventions, progress comes at a price, and soon Biren becomes a stranger among his own countrymen.

Just when his vision for the future begins to look hopeless, he meets Maya, the independent-minded daughter of a local educator, and his soul is reignited. It is in her love that Biren finally finds his home and in her heart that he finds the hope for a new world.

    Would you listen to Flame Tree Road again? Why?

    I might read the book, but I prefer not to repeat an audio book.

    The dialogue spoken by Neil Shah was most memorable. Whether he was speaking as a male or female, young or old, English or Indian, his characters were believeable.

    Biren, the main character was my favorite.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked that some of the events were unexpected and presented an interesting twist to the plot.
