Tamarind visits the childhood home of her late mother, reconnecting with her family and Indian heritage, in Jasbinder Bilan’s sensitively told middle-grade novel Tamarind & the Star of Ishta. Set in the foothills of the Himalayas, the story is rich in life and colour, cleverly combining the natural and spiritual to create a world that feels both magical and lushly tangible, that is what the book is about and that is why I like it. I would recommend this to read with your family
