A small village in India is affected by a wave of immigrants from newly formed Pakistan-stunned by the arrival of a train loaded with the bodies of thousands of refugees. All denominations had previously lived in peace in the village. The novel also focuses on the love between a Sikh boy and a Muslim Girl during a time of religious hatred.

A touching, very readable novel about how the bloody Partition of India and Pakistan affected a village of ordinary people caught up in that atmosphere of religious violence and vengeance.
