Come, Before Evening Falls

Jugni’s life changes the year she turns sixteen. Her grandmother begins a determined search for a bridegroom for her. Her uncle, a village elder, embarks upon an ambitious plan to open the very first school for their tradition-bound Jat community. Her cousin, a soldier in the British India army, is charged with sedition. In the midst of all this is her growing attraction to Raakha, the newly arrived schoolmaster, with a deeply troubled past and with radical ideas for social change.

Set in the year 1909, Come, Before Evening Falls is a gripping tale about the passion and perils of forbidden love, conflicting loyalties and devastating betrayal.
