Veiled Destinies: Learning to Live in India

Veiled-DestiniesXlibris, USA, 2009.

Part memoir, this is the account of how a fearful Midwesterner is transformed into something approaching insider status. One of the rewards of overcoming culture shock was making life-long Indian friends, some of whose stories are included. They were local people who admitted her to their private moments: illness, supranormal happenings, lives turned upside down. Lynton tells the stories with humor, insight, sympathy, whether they are about arranged marriages, one-word divorce, prehistoric-looking lizards, living with cobras, curries and djinns – it’s all there.
