Opis

Underpinned by true events, ´An Ayah's Choice´ draws us into a rarely seen aspect of British Indian history.

Following the momentous life of Jaya Devani, an Indian woman harbouring a secret that propels her to find her own agency against a backdrop of sex, class, and race discrimination.

In a small Indian village in 1900, aspiring artist Jaya Devani yearns for freedom beyond the confines of the life expected of her. When she begins a tumultuous relationship with her British colonial employer, William Edmundson, she launches herself on course for a new life as an ayah, a nanny, in London.

Arriving on British shores as the suffragette movement is growing, Jaya grapples with a choice: can she really find freedom in the arms of William, or will she have to seek out her own way to be truly free?

A story of the tenacity of the human spirit, friendship, and blazing your own path.

Perfect for fans of ´The Paris Library´ and ´The Beekeeper of Aleppo´.
