Description

Born to her parents in Mumbai as a result of prayer, pilgrimage, and every fertility treatment known to modern medicine, Kimaya is the first of her mothers babies to survive after seven miscarriages. Needless to say, her parents treat her like the miracle she is and protect her from anything outside their mansion. But she develops a rare form or aplastic anemia at the age of ten that severely compromises her immune system and requires her to be isolated in a laminar airflow room. Trapped in her ivory tower, she befriends the boy who shows up to wash her windows when he makes the math homework that befuddles her magically easy to understand with his brilliant mind. Rahul Savant was thirteen when his father died taking a bullet for Kimis politician father. Rahul was left to take care of two younger siblings and his mother. He accepts Kimis fathers mentorship on the condition that he works off the charity as a servant in his home. As he struggles to take care of his family in his poverty- and crime-ridden neighborhood he loses his beloved younger sister to illness and learns that blocking out his emotions is the only way to survive loss. But his friendship with Kimi is something he can restrict to the few hours he spends with her across the plastic curtain of her isolation room. As the years go by, Rahul and Kimi develop a unique and deep friendship. He becomes her eyes to the outside world, and she becomes his refuge in a cruel world. With Kimis encouragement, Rahul makes his way into the extremely selective Indian Civil Services Police Cadre. When Kimi is given a new lease on life via a life-saving procedure, she and Rahul must navigate their undeniable attraction, their lost friendship, complicated family dynamics, and a web of lies that cut too close to home to learn the real meaning of courage, loss, and love.

display_descriptionHer name means "miracle" in Sanskrit: Kimaya was the first baby to survive after several miscarriages, and grew up in a mansion at the top of Mumbai's Pali Hill, surrounded by love and privilege. But at eleven years old, she develops a rare illness that requires her to be confined to a germ-free ivory tower in her home. Rahul Savant shows up to wash Kimi's windows, and as years pass he becomes her eyes to the outside world, and she becomes his inspiration to better himself. When a life-saving heart transplant offers the chance of a real future, Kimi anticipates a new life, and Rahul investigates a black market organ ring that cuts too close to home.--
