‘Like Eat, Pray, Love but with more heart dazzlingly romantic and yet still very real; a unique and uplifting read that’s as much about traveling to India as it is about finding happiness.’—Library Journal

How far would you travel for love?
Alison Singh Gee was a glamorous magazine writer with a serious Jimmy Choo habit, a weakness for five-star Balinese resorts, and a reputation for dating high-born British men. Then she met Ajay, a charming and unassuming Indian journalist, and her world turned upside down.

Traveling from her shiny, fast-paced life in Hong Kong to Ajay’s village, Mokimpur, not very far from Delhi, Alison learned that not all was as it seemed. It turned out that Ajay was a landed prince (of sorts), but his family palace was falling to pieces. Replete with plumbing issues, strange noises, and intimidating relatives, her new love’s ramshackle palace was a broken-down relic in desperate need of a makeoverand Alison could not help but wonder if she would be able to soldier on for the sake of the man who just might be her soulmate.

Hailed as ‘Eat, Pray, Love’s down-to-earth cousin’, Where the Peacocks Sing takes readers on a cross-cultural journey from the manicured gardens of Beverly Hills to the bustling streets of Hong Kong, and finally, to the rural Indian countryside as Alison falls in love, comes to terms with her complicated new family, leaves the modern world behind, and learns the true meaning of home.
