Amita Trasi’s debut novel, The Color of Our Sky, is a beautiful, sweeping story that delves into some of the shadier aspects of Indian society. The caste system, human trafficking, the world of brothels… all are a bit disturbing for those unfamiliar, but readers will gain an interesting perspective on human behavior. Ultimately, though, this story is a beautiful testament to friendship, to the hope such pure love can give us and to the things we will do for another person.
