|I received an ARC of this book through Goodreads in exchange for an honest review.
This book is a prequel to Teatime for the Firefly, but can also be read on its own.
This is a beautiful novel that has well-rounded characters, an interesting storyline, and outstanding writing. I absolutely love it.
I have not read Patel's first book, Teatime for the Firefly, but after reading this one, I am definitely going to. Patel has an amazing writing style and writes with such pure emotion. Her characters feel so real and you can't help but love them.
I also really enjoyed the plot lines relating to women's rights in multiple cultures and how the characters view women. These issues were seamlessly woven into the story, creating interesting discussions about gender and equality between the characters.
Simply amazing. I cannot wait to read more by Patel.
