NECTAR IN A SIEVE

NECTAR IN A SIEVE

By Kamala Markandaya. This critically acclaimed novel tells the story of India and its people through the eyes of one woman and her experiences in a peasant family in a primitive village. Married as a child bride to a tenant farmer she had never seen, she works side by side in the field with her husband to wrest a living from the land that was ravaged by droughts, monsoons, and insects. With remarkable fortitude and courage, she seeks to meet changing times and fight poverty and disaster. She sees one of her infants die from starvation, her daughter become a prostitute, and her sons leave the land for jobs which she distrusted—but somehow, she survives. 102 pages.
