Comments from readers:
At last! I got your book from Amazon last week but it was worth waiting for. I enjoyed your story very much – and also enjoyed learning about the Scotland -India connections. Hope you’re working on the next one now. I’m looking forward to reading more.

I read your book and really enjoyed it. Fascinating insights into your rich cultural background and such vivid description. It’s wonderful to read and find your self so identifying with the author’s words that you can almost feel yourself transported back in time. There were moments like that in your book and in two I have read recently, James Kelman’s Kieron Smith, Boy and Janice Galloway’s It’s Not About me. C. Stapleton (Principal Teacher)
I bought your book at the ’Aye Write’ Sudden Fame event on Sunday, persuaded by the extract you read from it, and must say I’m thoroughly gripped, which is the mark of a good story. It’s very interesting to see Britain in general through other eyes. A really fine achievement.
