Set in a Jat village in 1920s India, and written in stark, spare and elegant prose Come, Before Evening Falls is an unflinching look at the price paid for love in a land where all romance is viewed as an unforgivable trespass. Come, Before Evening Falls tells the tale of a love that is doomed at the outset, not just because the star-crossed lovers are from different castes, but because cultural and social norms of family honour and female propriety are unforgiving and ruthless. The author paints a moving picture of one couple's agonising choice between dutiful obedience to the laws of kin and the pursuit of a love that is prhibited by these very same laws.
