A House Called Askival

She would lift them out, wrap them in towels, and rub them down singing silly
songs as she went. Head, shoulders, knees and toes... Two little eyes for Jesus...
This little piggy went to the bazaar... No little piggies in India ate roast beef.

An elegant, moving and heartfelt love letter to the sights, sounds and tastes of northern India told through the enthralling story of the troubled relationship between a father and daughter stretching from Partition to the present day. James Connor is a man who, burdened with guilt following a tragic event in his youth, has dedicated his life to serving India. Ruth Connor is his estranged daughter who, as a teenager, always knew she came second to her parents' missionary vocation and rebelled, with equally tragic consequences. After 24 years away, Ruth finally returns to Askival, the family home in Mussoorie, a remote hill station in the Northern State of Uttarakhand, to tend to her dying father. There she must face the past and confront her own burden of guilt if she is to cross the chasm that has grown between them. In this extraordinary and assured debut, Merryn Glover draws on her own upbringing as a child of missionary parents in Uttarakhand to create this sensitive, complex, moving and epic journey through the sights, sounds and often violent history of India from Partition to the present day. 'An original and engaging story. Glover understands houses are never just houses. Askival will break your heart.' Cynthia Rogerson, author of I Love You, Goodbye and If I Touched the Earth
