Rakesh Singh can't make his general store pay and Jas, his wife, just hates shop-life. Rakki is Dudley-born, and Jas is from Punjab. Daughter Sangita aspires to get into music college and son Amal has learning difficulties. With money tight, it's hard to know which way to turn.Temptation comes Rakki's way when a drunken down-and-out leaves behind a winning lottery ticket. It could make all the difference... But how to hide the secret? And what of conscience and Sikh ancestral roots?A trip to India merely fuels his guilt, and as the family enjoy new riches, Rakki's life is soon spiralling downwards. Bemused by drink and pressured by blackmail, he sees no escape, until a chance meeting with the man he wronged spins Rakki off in an entirely new direction.
Very enjoyable keep churning them out
I am so glad I purchased this book. It was full of interesting culture and I could actually visualise the characters. It was so interesting I couldn't put it down and I had a tear in my eye at the end. Brilliant book. I cannot wait to read more from Keith Bullock - very talented gentleman!!
I was kindly sent this book by Austin Macauley Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
I found this story hard to get into as it was quite slow paced in parts. However, I still enjoyed it.
It is packed full of believable characters and situations, which most people could relate to. It's extremely emotional and thought provoking! What would you do if you had a winning lottery ticket that wasn't yours?
The book has been written very well and I think a lot of people will really enjoy reading it. I would recommend it to everyone.
I look forward to seeing more from this author in the future!
