News & Reviews
Anne Benjamin's Saffron and Silk is the incredible personal account of an Australian living in India. The author writes about the massive life changes she combats when she moves from suburban Sydney to Chennai, the capital city of the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu.
Benjamin's memoir commences with a fast-moving romance and wedding with Susai - a man that she met at an education conference in Canada. We are then taken on her journey from Australia to India, where the vast cultural differences between the two countries are beautifully portrayed.
Benjamin does a magical job of weaving both her own personal memories into important historical moments that we have all read about in textbooks, but have failed to truly see through the eyes of ordinary people. I especially appreciated the detail Benjamin went into when discussing the aftermath of Indira Gandhi’s assassination, and the catastrophic impact this had on the people of India.
As a woman who has lived in two polar opposite worlds, Benjamin is able to share her experience in the most authentic and eye-opening way. Saffron and Silk will give you insight into life in India from an Australian woman’s perspective that you have never seen before.
Three Dark Crowns by Kendare Blake follows the story of three sisters Mirabella, Katharine and Arisone, separated while young to live with different families. All three sisters have magical abilities, three different elements of magic that connect to the lineage of the Royal family. Without having a family to teach them or guide them, the three sisters are on their own as they try to work out who they are and how they will rule. But with that responsibility comes the harsh reality of death. Faced with training for their magic or finding their magic, the three sisters must face the same trials and only one sister can win the crown.
This grisly filled story is a hard book to describe, as little details lead to a spoiler and can ruin the book. This is a book that should be read. There is nothing out there in the market like it. This Harry Potter/Hunger Games/Insurgent hybrid book will have you clinging from page to page, only to make you scream at the end, leaving you wanting more. The writing is strong and dramatic, the names may cause you some hassle, but don’t let that stop you from reading this deceptive book. Romance, intrigue and family issues combine to bring you a story that will leave you reeling.
If you’re looking for an adventure to go on or looking for a book to transport you to another world filled with magic and intrigue, then this is the book for you.
