FLAME TREE ROAD: June 30th, 2015

Early Reviews

As a prequel to Teatime for the Firefly, Flame Tree Road by Shona Patel is set in Bengal in the 1870’s and it traces the winding path of Biren Roy through his entire life. Roy is the grandfather to Layla in Teatime so this book is the backstory. Patel writes a great tale which engages and keeps your interest. The reader is introduced to Indian culture, especially the caste system and its societal bases. Patel says she hopes to further explain it to Western audiences. The thought that “people arrive at inner peace and wisdom only by transcending great personal tragedy” is woven into the plot several times and allows the reader contemplate this maxim. Emerging feminism in both England and India are part of the plot and give this historical fiction book enough plot twists and romance to have you reading all night long.
