Waiting for the MonsoonBook - 2012
India, 1995. Charlotte Bridgwater lives with her father and just one loyal servant in an old, dilapidated villa in the little town of Rampur. Madan, a talented local tailor who cannot speak, rents a room in Charlotte's house and sews beautiful garments for the local ladies. Charlotte and Madan soon discover that they can communicate without using words. And as the extreme heat before the impending monsoon paralyzes the town, we learn about both of their lives.
