Blind Faith

by Sagarika Ghose
£7.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2008)

Blind Faith by Sagarika Ghose When Mia, acutely depressed by the suicide of her artist father, meets Karna, a young and mesmeric guru who bears a startling resemblance to a figure in her fatherís painting, she feels compelled to follow him all the way from London to India. And if marrying Vik, the suave businessman her mother so approves of, is the way to get there, so be it.
 
Once in India, Mia learns about Vikís mother, Indi. She is a figure of great power, inordinately beautiful and gifted, but blind. Her rage ensnares and yet rejects anyone who tries to come close. Mia must travel to the Kumbh Mela, the festival on the banks of the Ganges, to make sense of everything: her own confused love for two men, Indiís anguish, her own familyís history. And yet when she arrives, nothing is as she thought it would be; through a change in perspective, she comes to realise the limitations of vision...
 
This is a remarkable tale of hope, destruction and ultimately of rebirth, as one young woman explores the shifting sands of illusion and truth.
