Kilingiri by Janna Gray
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I was granted this book to read by GMTA Publishing [Imprint: Libertine Press] Via Net Galley. I was very pleased to be able to get this, read and review it.
I found it very hard work at the start as it had a lot of detail in the first half of the book, it was essential though as it had to explain why Nina was living in a houseboat and pregnant. It took off in the second half of the book and I enjoyed every moment of it.
Its around when being pregnant, unmarried is so frowned upon that she is very ashamed but mixed with her emotions in having her baby.
Thoroughly enjoyed it. The author has proved herself a brilliant story teller.

Kilingiri’ will appeal to readers who enjoy sagas with elements of romance, mystery and drama, loss and gain, religion and redemption played out in exotic locations over a timespan of thirty years. It addresses the issues of celibacy within the Catholic church, the heartbreak of rejection and separation, the difficulties of raising a child as a single parent, the effects of post natal depression on a marriage and the family, the healing power of forgiveness, and culminates in what we all dream of … a happy ever after scenario.
