One Hundred Shades of White

by Preethi Nair
£9.99   paperback  Harper Collins (2004)

One Hundred Shades of White by Preethi Nair Maya, her mother Nalini, and her brother Satchin have left a carefree life in India to come to England. But when Maya's father disappears leaving only deceit and debt behind, they are left to fend for themselves in a strange, damp land.
 
Maya, though, doesn't know of her father's betrayal. Nalini, determined to preserve her children's pride, tells them their father died in an accident and, as their struggle to make a life begins, whole realities are built on this lie. While Nalini cooks exotic pickles which enchant all who eat them, May begins to adapt to her new home - the unfamiliar food, the language, the music - and then to explore and make bold plans, plans that her mother does not understand.
 
But even a white lie cannot remain hidden forever - and when the truth resurfaces, it changes everything.
