Two parallel stories, depicting a British woman and Indian man, are linked by coincidence, business and death set in the South of France.
The book is woman´s fiction and explores loneliness, fear and belief within different societies. The two stories, with the main characters above and subsidiary characters, interweave. The British woman, Zara and the Indian man, Suraj are brought together at the end of the book through a series of coincidental but believable circumstances.
Zara is a bitch in spite of herself. She is disillusioned with Europe yet she is the unwitting product of 21st century hedonism and self-absorption and it slowly consumes her. Suraj on the surface is the product of his Eastern heritage. He leads a balanced and successful life, but he and his family are being continually seduced by the superficial and material trappings of his Western lifestyle and he himself is prone to lecherous fantasies. Both have fears they cannot face.
It is a yearning to give some meaning to her existence that draws Zara to her past and it is the hope of giving some meaning to his existence that pushes Suraj forward to his future. But is it their idealism that keeps them out of touch with everyday life?
The fashion business, death and fate bring these two characters together in the South of France and offer them the possibility of reconciliation.
