At the time of the Queen Elizabeth's silver jubilee when many street parties were happening a photograph was taken of one of them and in the centre of that photograph was Satish a Pakistani immigant to Britain. The photograph was shown as an example of how Britain was and should be - a multicultural country embracing others from different countries. When we fast forward to the present Satish is a successful cardiologist who regularly saves lives. He is asked to take part in a reenactment of that photo with all the people from the original photo getting together again, but Satish does not want to do this for he has a secret. Things were not as they seemed on that day. This book goes back and forward in time. It captures the lives of all the participants in the photo and how relations were between them at the time and it tells the story of where their lives have taken them from that day. I enjoyed this story a lot.
Very slow to get going, was expecting a much bigger and better twist to the story.
