This story is about a young girl who is dropped off at her grandmother's one day by her worthless father.  The grandmother did have a small garden and it was the garden that go them thru by mixing the veggies with rice. Her friend would give her a  mango every once in awhile to help keep her and her grandmother healthy.

In 1990, India Divena and her grandmother were considered the poorest class of people, mostly working as slaves to the landowners. Many were beaten to death because they were too sick to work. Divena was determined to do something better and she kept asking  her grandmother if the God that you read to me about, can he not help us?

One of the wealthy land owners, Ajay Varghese also had 3 sons. Greed filled 2 of the boys and they wanted everything that life had to offer. But, it sometimes does not work out that way.

This is a good moral story that fits just about any age and I would recommend that it is worth it to check out.

The author and the PR group for this blogger have agreed to let me hold a giveaway for this book. You will love reading this book! Open to the U.S. only.
