Details

When Sita and her family travel across the sea from India to build a new life in South Africa, they have no idea what lies in store for them. Working as indentured labourers on a sugar-can plantation in Natal, life is hard.But for Sita, it is also filled with the joys of growing up, first love and the dawning of passion. Defying tradition, the young girl becomes enmeshed in a forbidden love affair with Albert, the English brother-in-law of the estate owner. Unwillingly at first, Sita is forced into a marriage of her parents' chosing - but her secret passion never dies. Years later, when she has settled into marriage and motherhood, Albert returns, and Sita must grapple with her feelings again.The Heart Knows No Colour also delves into the criminal underwold of turn-of-the-century Durban. Entwined in Sita's story is the tale of Gopi, her older brother, who comes to ruin in the seedy gambling dens of the big city.Sumptuous, sexy, packed with period detail, the story weaves a rich tapestry of love, family loyalty and betrayal, and the early struggles of the South African Indian community. Compelling and accessible, it is sure to appeal to all lovers of romantic fiction.
