A hugely absorbing, satisfying read, beautifully crafted but thrillingly told, in the style of THE FAR PAVILIONS.

Pree Fincastle, daughter of impoverished British missionaries in India, is left alone and destitute when tragedy strikes. Turned away by the Church, she embarks on a journey in search of Kai, the son of her mothers ayah, and the only person she can trust. But Kai is not the man Pree thought he was, and the secrets he holds will unlock the door to another world, another time and, shockingly, another life. Haunting, powerful, heartbreaking and magnificent, IN A FAR COUNTRY tells of one young womans enthralling journey. A passage through penury and prostitution, tragedy and bloodshed, secrets and love, it is ultimately a story of hope; a story that, once read, will never be forgotten...

I thought this was a great book. She's the first Canadian author I've read that I actually liked. Didn't find any mistakes in the writing, and it kept me interested. Very sad though.

I liked the way the story keeps moving though I found the ending a little abrupt. Still its a good read.
