      Probably a 3.5 that is closer to a 3, but it gets the bump up for being the book to get me out of my reading slump Watch me talk about the book in my October wrap up

      I had hoped to come back to the Perveen Mistry books in print and enjoy myself and happily I did I very much disliked the audiobook of the first novel I was pleased that the setting here moved to somewhere new and we got to see Perveen mostly on her own Part of the pleasure of this kind of book is diving into a piece of history I don t know well, exploring a whole new set of customs and beliefs, and we get a very different world here than we did in the first book, looking at the Hindu I had hope [...]

      The Satapur Moonstone is a leap in time to the 1920 s and a giant leap in culture, customs, and history to India Sujata Massey has written an informative and entertaining tale of a young Indian lawyer who just happens to be a woman at a time when women had so few opportunities or rights Perveen Mistry is a delightful heroine who tries to balance her legal background with the societal conventions of her time Thoughtfully, Ms Massey includes a little glossary with Indian terms that are somewha The [...]

      This is the second in a mystery series, set on 1920 s India Preveen Mistry is a lawyer from Bombay, sent to work out a compromise regarding a young Maharaja s future schooling Preveen quickly realizes there are serious issues, including the death of the Maharaja s older brother I highly recommend this series, which offers a detailed look into pre independence India, it s culture and various religions and traditions Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

      I m entranced with this series set in 1920 s India and featuring an Oxford trained, Indian woman lawyer who is a Parsi Zoroastrian Absolutely intriguing character and fascinating plots The first one in the series, The Widows of Malabar Hill, gave readers the background of Perveen Mistry, her missteps in training as a lawyer, following in her father s steps, and her disasterous romance, all bundled into a very interesting mystery Being one of the very few women lawyers in India, Perveen finds I m [...]
