The Sandalwood Tree by Elle Newmark – Book Review

Synopsis:

Set against the backdrop of a country which is going through a political, social restructure and is trying to recover from the pain and anguish of partition and war, The Sandalwood Tree is a tale of two love stories that are ninety years apart.

1947, the year when India became independent and got freedom from British rule, is witnessing several social and political changes. It is the year of Britain’s withdrawal from the country after 200 years. While the political parties of Independent India are taking control, the country is also rife with violence and is going through a time of civil unrest.
