The House of Hidden Mothers by Meera Syal Little India, East London: Shyama, aged forty-four, has fallen for a younger man. They want a child together.
 
Meanwhile, in a rural village in India, young Mala, trapped in an oppressive marriage, dreams of escape.
 
When Shyama and Mala meet, they help each other realise their dreams. But will fate guarantee them both happiness?...
