American born nine-year-old Ooma and her little sister, six-year-old Meera, are about to take the adventure of a lifetime. Along with their family, they’re traveling to a relative’s wedding in India to learn more about their heritage and culture. It’s a trip they won’t soon forget!
Their first stop on a crowded train full of colorful passengers acquaints them with “squat” toilets, exotic foods, and remnants of the British Raj rule. The sights are far removed from their comfortable Texas upbringing, but Ooma and Meera make the most of the experience, getting to know their other relatives―including their grandfather―in the process.
As they make their way to the Himalayas, they stop and tour the glorious Taj Mahal, the ruined city of Fatehpur Sikri, and the Hawa Mahal, the Palace of Winds. But it is when they reach the magnificent, snow-capped Himalayan Mountains that the children feel the connection between their past and present.
It is fascinating to see how life-long memories and unbreakable bonds are created through these wanderings. A lot of human stories and quirky human behavior are entwined very skillfully on these pages. This novel not only will make you laugh but it will probably make you shed a tear or two.
Tales from the Himalayas will keep tugging at your heart, long after you finish the book.
So, put on your traveling shoes and get ready to be enthralled!
