Last week, an Indian girl, early twenties, in a red peasant blouse, black capri pants and wide strapped sandals, sat at a side table, early evening, inside Yotopia, a frozen yogurt shop in Iowa City, Iowa. Her long thick curly black hair was pulled back in a low-slung ponytail. Her eyes focused only on the book as the shop was busy with many customers coming and going. What kept her attention so well?
Under the Jeweled Sky by Alison McQueen. (A historical novel set in India.)
