A man lies dying, tended by his two daughters. A strangely absent presence, he has nonetheless dictated the shape of their lives to this point-manipulating and even distorting their hopes, ambitions, and desires. In Echoes in the Well, the twinned strands of their lives, shadowed by their father, are interwoven with the life of the girls' mother, a strong and single-minded woman who deliberately defies Indian society's expectations of how a woman should act. Set within the richly drawn background of Shillong and the Punjab, Belinder Dhanoa's debut novel tackles the problems inherent in a patriarchal society while offering a moving account of the complexities of family loyalties, betrayals, and love.
