    There are books that you fall in love with, books you enjoy so much that you do not want them to end Books that capture your imagination and do not let go long after the last page, so that, even though you are an avid reader, you do not want to open another book because no other will match the beauty, the magnificence of the one you ve just finished Books whose characters you do not want to part with, just yet Sharon Maas s Of Marriageable Age is one such book Spanning three continents and five decades, this is a colorful tapestry woven with words, the descriptions so breath taking that they create an instant sense of place Maas s mastery over language is such that we experience each event along with the characters I reveled in the joy and bustle of Stabroek Market, Guiana, with Saroj and her mother I roamed the grounds of Fairwinds, India, with Savitri I despaired of the flood that almost washed away his vill...

    I really enjoyed most of this book, specifically the fact that it had three different narrators living in different places and times I loved the vivid descriptions of India, and it felt like I was experiencing it first hand, especially in Nat and Sav s stories Unfortunately I thought the ending included too much drama, and too many twists The Story Of Marriageable Age is the story of three different characters...

    Of Marriageable Age is the first novel by Sharon Maas and tells the stories of Nat, Saroj and Savitri The stories are set in British Guiana and England and India, in time periods ranging from the 1920s to the 1960s, and the lives of these three characters are inextricably linked, but the mystery of exactly how only becomes clear as the stories progress Maas uses this enchanting love story to explore subjects like Indians living abroad, arranged marriages, prejudice, cultural boundaries, war and poverty There is laughter, tears and heartache in this novel, the characters are wonderfully complex and there is a brilliant twist in the plot that will take the reader by surprise unless they are paying attention to the smallest details This is the first novel I have read that is set ...

    When speaking of the book Of Marriageable Age by Sharon Maas it is difficult not to use such words as tapestry, intricate and woven Each thread of the story seems to be woven in such a way as to create an intricate tapestry which presents a delicate picture of the lives of the characters in this book It is true that author Sharon Maas believes that there exists a grand scheme to our lives and that if we are sensitive to, in her words the magnetism we will indeed benefit This belief is aptly demonstrated in the book.The setting for the book is on three continents, India in Asia, Guyana in South America and Britain in Europe and the time span is from the 1920 s through the 1960 s The main characters are tied to each other in intricate and mysterious ways The older generation who grew up in India, are David, an English boy and Savitri, daughter of his servants and the younger generation, Saroj a young girl of Indian descent growing up in Guyana and Nat, an Indian orphan For those of us who came of age in the 1960 s in the United States it is interesting to see that people of other countries and cultures were dealing with similar issues at that time For Saroj, a young woman from Guyana and Nat, a young man from Indian the issues of rebellion and independence from the ...

    This is the first book I ve read in a while and I was than satisfied to begin with this particular novel Of Marriageable Age spins a story about three people Savitri, Saroj and Nat who are connected very intricately It is about their journey from young and innocent children to the adults that they mature into I realise that from the storyline, it may appear to be quite dull and not so original undoubtedly, this is not the case From the first page to the last, Sharon Maas had me swimming in the depth of the characters I was near tears when moments of sadness came to be, and I especially love the very relatable character of Saroj Her very realistic portrayal had me frustrated and disheartened however, it was truly her development that made the novel a stand out piece The author leaves no stones unturned in justifying all the actions and all ...

    This first novel of author Sharon Maas is an extremely moving account of lives moulded, redirected and destroyed by prejudice, cultural boundaries, war and poverty I found the over riding theme to be one of forgiveness, tolerance and a belief that it is never too late for change.Her characters in this novel span 2 generations and a multitude of religions, beliefs and customs set in South America, Singapore and England I found the author s sympathetic ap...

    This book made me crazy I loved loved loved the first 400 pages Interesting characters, compelling story then for some unknown reason, Maas shifts the book into a complicated, yet totally predictable, over written soap opera I could not wait wait to be done...
