In the Foothills of the Himalayas: Sarah Hussain




Born in the Raj era under British rule, Vidhya grows up observing her father fight for a free India. She witnesses catastrophic flooding as a result of deforestation by order of a powerful English company, and begins to understand the importance of preserving the forest. When Vidhya uncovers a conspiracy that puts her in great jeopardy, she courageously leads a group of women on a non-violent protest and they embrace the trees. But at what cost?

The book will be published in the summer of 2023 by RiverRun, an imprint of Foreshore Publishing.
