Resumen:

The Wonder House : On Nagin Lake sits moored a houseboat called The Wonder House, on which Englishwoman, Gracie Singh, has been living out her widowhood since the death of her Indian husband. From The Wonder House Gracie has watched the valley become brutally disfigured by Pakistan and India's drawn-out clash over this coveted territory - just as she has watched her best friend and landlord, Masood Abdullah, change from a jeans-wearing, flirtatious young man to an anxious father hemmed in by growing Islamic orthodoxy. Soon after Masood's nephew disappears to join an extremist militant group, Hal, a journalist from England, comes to interview Gracie, putting them all in grave danger. Told by and about a Western woman's immersion in the endlessly alluring and troubled Islamic culture of North India, Hardy's gorgeous and gritty novel about human passions in a battered valley is a vital addition to the literature about India.
