I enjoyed the blend of past and "present" (the character's present, not ours) but the time period didn't feel like quite as much of a "presence" as I maybe wanted.
In some ways the story could have taken place anytime/anyplace.
Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but in a historical fiction set in India during partition and the subsequent mess, a little more of that might have been nice.
Overall, this maybe wasn't so much my style, but I did end up enjoying it. An interesting tale of love lost but still with a hopeful ending.
