Poignant account of the moment in history when in 1947 India and Pakistan divide not only their land but also their Muslim and Hindi citizens. Nisha, the daughter of a Muslim mother and a Hindu father, must now leave the land of her birth forever as she crosses the new nation of Pakistan to reach a new home in India. She describes this move in an honest, emotional journal addressed to her deceased mother. Will Nisha and her remaining family survive the long, perilous journey to a new land?
