In the Shadow of Crows (Paperback)

David Charles Manners


A true story of two unlikely individuals who change each others lives: When Bindra contracts leprosy she is driven from her home by prejudice and ignorance, and left languishing in a charitable compound, where the children of others affected by leprosy gradually restore her will to live. Davids childhood imagination is entirely consumed by a fantasy life in far away in India. When a series of tragedies leaves him lost, he is driven to rediscover his non-British roots. The poverty and misery with which he comes in contact on his journey dispels the naivety of his childhood imagination. And when he eventually walks into a leprosy colony and meets an elderly woman called Bindra, both their lives are transformed.
