    Flowers in the Blood ePUB » Flowers in PDF/EPUB or flowers kindle, blood book, Flowers in pdf, Flowers in the Blood MOBII absolutely loved this book It was a book club choice and I really wasn't interested in reading it However I started it and before long it was difficult to put it down It's a lengthy book filled with wonderful details and I learned about the opium trade in late 19th century India than I ever knew I would be interested in I am very impressed with the author's in depth research of Jewish family lives in Calcutta during this time The story is based on an actual murder in Calcutta and the characters are developed around this shocking event The reader is immersed in Dinah's life as we journey with her from her lonely childhood to her eventual head of a very successful family We see her being rejected as a suitable wife for the sons of Calcutta's desirable Jewish familie

    Flowers in the Blood ePUB » Flowers in PDF/EPUB or flowers kindle, blood book, Flowers in pdf, Flowers in the Blood MOBIThis saga gets high marks for its exotic setting the Jewish community in India in the late 19th century its revelations about the prominent role of some Jewish families in the opium trade and for telling its story through the eyes of a female protagonist Dinah Sassoon But it is weakened by veering too close to melodrama in some instances and belaboring financial details of the opium trade in others Plus I could never uite believe one key plot point Character development was also a little disappointing Dinah's emotional responses and inner voice barely mature through the course of the novel and certain other key characters lack depth Nevertheless this tale is compelling with many entertaining moments Ultimately I was glad for what I learned of the Jews in Calcutta and Darjeeling

    Flowers in the Blood ePUB » Flowers in PDF/EPUB or flowers kindle, blood book, Flowers in pdf, Flowers in the Blood MOBIMy husband and I read this 600 page book aloud while we were traveling and enjoyed it very much We enjoyed learning about the Baghdadi Jewish community in Calcutta Cochin and Darjeeling in India in the late 1800's; the customs the history the relationship with the Hindu population and the role that the Sassoon family played with the opium trade to China The main character Dina is a very fascinating figure We laughed at the Harleuinesue scenes of sex and romance his bronzed body and chiseled chin etc since it was not effective nor necessary for the likability of the characters and plot We enjoyed the intimate portrait of the events which unfolded in India and China They were vividly drawn and compelling

    Flowers in the Blood ePUB » Flowers in PDF/EPUB or flowers kindle, blood book, Flowers in pdf, Flowers in the Blood MOBIAlmost 5 stars but towards the end it bogged down a bit but that is just a bit in a very long epic tale The story of a Jewish woman living in Calcutta in the late 1800's this book combines both Jewish and Indian rituals and opens us up to the very large and influential Jewish Indain community there It's chock full of facts descriptions history and the inner workings of the opium trade We follow Dinah a bright and precocious child as she develops into a tough young adult very daring for a woman of her time I couldn't get my nose out of the book I highly recommend
