The Red Pavilion
"Although Miss Turner talked a great deal, no one in the village knew much about her. She had a peculiar look that she used liberally whenever someone dared to ask her a question that bordered on personal. But apart from Miss Turner and her mysterious life, everyone in the village loved her and she was fond of everyone—after all, she had in fact stuck around for over five years. The quiet little hamlet didn't have that many days of peace remaining though. The arrival of a strange new book called 'The Red Pavilion' by an author no one had heard about before was going to bring about a strange upheaval in the townspeople's lives—including mysterious Miss Turner's. The magic of Nergis Dalal's stories lies in her characters and their quirks and The Red Pavilion is everything that you'd want from a Dalal story and more. Read on."
