Overview
Shortlisted for the 2016 William Saroyan International Prize for Writing It is 1554 in the desert of Rajasthan, and a new Mughal emperor is expanding his territory. On a rare night of rain, a daughter, Adhira, is born to a family of Hindu temple dancers. Fearing a bleak future, her father against his wife and sons protests puts his faith in tradition and in his last child for each to save the other: he insists Adhira marry the temple deity and give herself to a wealthy patron. But after one terrible evening, she makes a bold choice that carries her family s story and their dance to a startling new beginning. Told from the perspective of this exquisite dancer and filled with the sounds, sights and flavors of the Indian desert, Faint Promise of Rain is the story of a family and a girl caught between art, duty, and fear in a changing world."
