A January NPR Pick of Romances That Take You Somewhere Warm

Her name means “miracle” in Sanskrit, and to her parents, that’s exactly what Kimaya is. The first baby to survive after several miscarriages, Kimi grows 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, with only the Arabian Sea churning outside her window for company … until one person dares venture into her world.

Tasked at fourteen years old with supporting his family, Rahul Savant shows up to wash Kimi’s windows, and an unlikely friendship develops across the plastic curtain of her isolation room. As years pass, Rahul becomes Kimi’s eyes to the outside world—and she becomes his inspiration to better himself by enrolling in the police force. But when a life-saving heart transplant offers the chance of a real future, both must face all that ties them together and keeps them apart.

As Kimi anticipates a new life, Rahul struggles with loving someone he may yet lose. And when his investigation into a black market organ ring run by a sociopathic gang lord exposes dangerous secrets that cut too close to home, only Rahul’s deep, abiding connection with Kimi can keep her safe—and reveal the true meaning of courage, loss, and second chances.

Infused with the rhythms of life in modern-day India, acclaimed author Sonali Dev’s candid, rewarding novel beautifully evokes all the complexities of the human heart.

Review Quotes

“A gorgeously written love story…The question of whose heart beats in Kimi’s chest and what it may or may not have to do with Rahul’s investigation is the pulse of this novel; our lovers end up on the run, trying to stay ahead of both her father and the organ-trafficking gangster as they uncover the mystery of her new heart—and the feelings that just won’t go away.”


“There is a tremendous richness to this story as these protagonists, who have been lifelong friends, must face not only their own individual emotional hang-ups but revelations about the outside forces that have molded and manipulated them. A truly captivating tale of friendship and love.”

RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

“Dev’s latest searingly asks its characters what they’re willing to do for the people they love, with a narrative that deftly jumps from past to present as it explores family dynamics, class issues, and many layers of guilt, hope, and determination in ways that are both distinctly Indian and universally luminous.”

Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Thrilling action sequences and a complex, weighty romance propel this smart, sensitive story…[which] also paints a vivid picture of modern Mumbai.”
