Will she find the family that generously took her in, the home that became her own? Will she reconcile with the people who gave her unquestioning love? Or will all these certainties have fled with the march of history?A deeply moving narrative of love and loss, All Passion Spent focuses on the human aftershocks that accompany the 1947 Partition of India and the emergence of India and Pakistan as two separate countries.Zaheda Hina’s richly layered narrative touches on the many unanswered questions that surround a painful history through the eyes of one unforgettable woman—the profound sense of grief and displacement, the lives sundered midstream, the lost friendships and the quest for new roots and lands under different skies.
