Two hundred fifty pages of laugh-out-loud stories, along with insights to ponder, and enough exotica to keep you marveling at the many ways people put worthwhile lives together. That's Veiled Destinies; Lynton, the author, has spent more than twenty years in India. Landing there as a fearful outsider, she managed to become an insider and tells about that transition with grace and pace. Arranged marriages, one-word divorce, geckoes as mosquito control, remodeling a house with two-feet thick granite walls, staying home on full moon nights when pregnant, living with cobras, curries, and djinns – it's all there.

About the Author:

H. Ronken Lynton, the third woman on the Harvard Business School faculty, left there to move to India, where she and her British husband have spent weeks or years in 50 of the last 53 years. They have also lived in Ceylon (now SriLanka), Indonesia, and Botswana. Lynton has worked as organizational consultant and trained faculty of institutions in case research and teaching. Then she discovered the joys of archival research and launched into a different career: writing trade books. Lynton and her husband live in North Carolina; they have three children and four grandchildren in the US, China, Europe.
