In her debut novel, Shubhangi Swarup narrates an epic love story, following the interconnected lives of various protagonists searching for true connection and intimacy as they venture across the Indian subcontinent. We follow a scientist who studies trees and a clairvoyant who understands and speaks to them, a geologist who wants put an end to senseless wars over a glacier, a pair of 80-year-old lovers, a mother struggling to free her revolutionary son, a yeti seeking human companionship, a turtle that undergoes miraculous transformations, and the spirit of an evaporated ocean as restless as the drifting continents. All are united by a vision of life as vast as the universe itself.
