Description

Fifty-year-old Robin Rowe returns to Dhaka, Bangladesh, her first visit since she was an exchange student there in 1970. The country, then East Pakistan, was on the brink of the war that led to its independence from Pakistan. Robin was repatriated just as the violence erupted, and as a result of the conflict, lost touch with her friends, and the Chowdhury family with whom she boarded that year. On her return visit, Robin discovers a shocking truth about her legacy in the country. A well-intentioned act she carried out – thwarting an arranged marriage – has resulted in disastrous consequences: suicide, torture and the disappearance of the beloved Luna Chowdhury.
