About The Book

Lila Langdon is twelve years old when she witnesses a family tragedy after her mother unveils her father's surprise birthday present-a tragedy that ends her childhood in India and precipitates a new life in Sussex with her great-aunt Wilhelmina.

From 1855, in the darkest days of the British Raj through to the aftermath of the First World War, Belonging tells the interwoven story of three generations and their struggles to understand and free themselves from a troubled history steeped in colonial violence. It is a novel of secrets that unwind through Lila's story, through her grandmother's letters home from India and the diaries kept by her father, Henry, as he puzzles over the enigma of his birth and his stormy marriage to the mysterious Rebecca.

Umi Sinha's unforgettable debut is an intense, compelling and finely wrought epic of love and loss, of race and ethnicity, of homeland-and of belonging.

About The Author

Umi Sinha was born in the military hospital in Mumbai (then Bombay) in 1952 to an English mother and Indian father. She grew up in India in the decade following Independence, when there was deeply held resentment against the British. She moved to Britain in 1968 during the backlash against the mass immigration of Asians who had been expelled from Uganda and Kenya. The experience of being an outsider looking for a place to belong, along with the impact of history-political and personal-on individual lives, is a major theme in her writing.

Sinha has an MA in Creative Writing and taught at the University of Sussex for ten years. She teaches creative writing classes and workshops, runs a performance storytelling club and offers a mentoring and manuscript appraisal service for writers. She is also a trained mediator and trustee at her local community centre. She has had short stories published, including in Cosmopolitan magazine and in a Serpent Tail's anthology. Belonging is her debut novel.
