Set in St Andrews, Scotland before the millennium, among the jute mills of Dundee (1915-1923), in the industrial underbelly and opium dens of colonial Calcutta (1923-1946) and on the epic plains of ancient India, Karna’s Wheel takes the reader on a journey that is, by turns, funny, gritty, poetic, poignant, infused with love and, ultimately, exceptionally distinct.

On the Shelf Books; a bookblog for readers

This is top-class historical fiction with strongly realized characters and an emotional punch … one of the most human and engrossing novels I’ve ever read … human history at its finest – making us see the Raj not as a list of events but a succession of relationships, decisions and human frailties that accumulated in change, loss and upheaval for thousands of people. I absolutely loved the evocative description and lyrical language in this novel and got swept up in the story so much that I didn’t want to leave. I can’t recommend this book highly enough – it’s an intelligent, immersive and atmospheric read that draws you in and holds you tight until you’ve turned the final page.
