Description
Gloria Whelan's National Book Award-winning novel, chronicles the breathtaking story of a remarkable young woman who dares to defy fate.

Like many girls her age in India, thirteen-year-old Koly faces her arranged marriage with hope and courage. But Koly's story takes a terrible turn when in the wake of the ceremony, she discovers she's been horribly misled; her life has been sold for a dowry. In prose both graceful and unflinching, this powerful novel relays the story of a rare young woman, who even when cast out into a brutal current of time-worn tradition, sets out to forge her own remarkable future.

Inspired by a newspaper article about the real thirteen-year-old widows in India today, this universally acclaimed bestselling novel, characterized by spare, lyrical language and remarkable detail, transports listeners into the heart of a gripping tale of hope.
