When she arrives in her new husbands village, she is soon face-to-face with what her future will look like. Her brother-in-law stares at her with hunger, an elder aunt berates her and allows her no joy, and her husband has a job in the far-away city of Bombay.What she doesnt know yet, however, is that she has a gift. A gift that will help her navigate this new life with ease and power. But it is a gift that can destroy everything and everyone she loves. She must learn to wield it, and wield it well, if she is to walk the path of the goddess she is descended from.
