Dancing to the Flute: A Novel

Dancing to the Flute: A Novel - Manisha Jolie Amin A moving coming-of-age story set in the vibrant landscape of India. I enjoyed learning Indian words and phrases peppered throughout the book (there is a glossary included). I fell in love with Kalu, the young street-wise boy who relies on his wits to survive, as he was abandoned as a small child. We are taken on a journey of music, love, family, and heartbreak that will not be soon forgotten. The author has a link to examples of the music Kalu is taught by his mentor, Guruji: http://manishajolieamin.com/music-links/
