 Read the heart-stopping new novel from the Booker-shortlisted author of The Year of the Runaways'Sunjeev Sahota's writing is the stuff of miracles' Bryan Washington'A gorgeous, gripping read' Kamila ShamsieMehar, a young bride in rural 1929 Punjab, is trying to discover the identity of her new husband. She and her sisters-in-law, married to three brothers in a single ceremony, spend their days hard at work in the family's 'china room', sequestered from contact with the men. When Mehar develops a theory as to which of them is hers, a passion is ignited that will put more than one life at risk.

Spiralling around Mehar's story is that of a young man who in 1999 travels from England to the now-deserted farm, its 'china room' locked and barred. In enforced flight from the traumas of his adolescence - his experiences of addiction, racism, and estrangement from the culture of his birth - he spends a summer in painful contemplation and recovery, finally gathering the strength to return home. 'I'm blown away by it.

I was gripped from the first page to the last' Tessa Hadley'Such a thrilling combination of beauty and heartbreak. It's breathtaking' Charlotte Mendelson'An intense drama of classic themes - love, family, survival, and betrayal - told with passion and precision in Sahota's economical, lyrical prose' Adam Foulds
