Laxmi’s courage and determination to fulfill her dead father’s dreams and encourage the villagers to think differently really shone through despite her fears and reservations. Not an easy feat and there is still plenty that could go wrong. In addition, I’ve brushed up on my Indian culture. I know a lot more about the sacred cow than I originally did, and I have to say that the cow’s “voice” was endearing. Her original story of being lost and then found was very sad, but how her growing family were portrayed as kind, loving creatures was a treat to read. A beautiful book by Beautiful Books!
