When Polly’s husband is jailed for paedophilia, she flees the village where her grandmother raised her and travels to India where she stays with her friend, Amanda.

Polly is appalled by the poverty, and what her husband had done, and her guilt drives her to help the street children of Kolkata. It’s while working she meets other volunteers, Liam and Finlay. Her days are divided between teaching the children and helping with their health needs. But when Liam’s successor refuses to let Polly continue working, she’s devastated to think the children will feel she’s abandoned them.

After a health scare of her own, she discovers her friend, Amanda, is pregnant. Amanda leaves India to have her child. At this time Polly and Finlay fall in love and work together helping the children. Tragedy strikes when one child is found beaten and another dead. Polly feels history repeating itself when Finlay becomes emotionally attached to a young girl.

Can Polly recover from her broken heart and continue to help the children, or will she give up and return home?

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I devour Dianne Noble’s books about India. Her observation skills are second to none. Her characters become friends, they’re so real. The reader sees the very worst of Kolkata slums through Polly’s eyes and we admire her courage and strength in needing to help the orphaned or poverty stricken children. Another excellent book. It’s about time Ms. Noble’s name was published alongside the greats.

I have never been to India, well in person I haven’t. I have however read the two novels written by Dianne Noble and feel, due to her talent in bringing alive the sights, smells and sounds, I now feel I have had a taster of the country which inspires her to write about them.

*******

Dianne Noble did a wonderful job of describing India and showing you how they live and all the things that they live with or without according to how you look at it. Polly is a very strong and wonderful person and her work with the children is very remarkable. I truly enjoyed reading A Hundred Hands and I would like to read more about Polly, the children and India as well. I really like reading stories where the author gives you at least a little detail about the country and people who live there.

Very impressed with this book. This author is well talented that she’s able to make you feel as if you are in India. While reading your imagination really can see what the author is telling. This is well thought out and written book with an amazing story line!

A Hundred Hands had me engrossed immediately. The tender story line of Polly and the blend of mystery enshrouding her trip to India are beautifully presented and had me turning page after page eagerly. There is a vivid depth in the story’s portrayal. Author Dianne Noble eloquently weaves cultural identity, love, struggle, triumph and a passion for making a difference- among her solidly developed characters.

About The Author

I was born into a service family and at the tender age of seven found myself on the Dunera, a troopship, sailing for a three year posting to Singapore. So began a lifetime of wandering – and fifteen different schools. A teenager, living in Cyprus, before partition, when the country was swarming with handsome UN soldiers and then marriage to a Civil Engineer who whisked me away to the Arabian Gulf.

Most of the following years were spent as a single parent with an employment history which ranged from the British Embassy in Bahrain to a goods picker, complete with steel toe-capped boots, in an Argos warehouse. In between I earned my keep as a cashier in Barclays, a radio presenter and a café proprietor on the sea front in Penzance.

My travels have taken me to China, Egypt, Israel, Guatemala, Russia, Morocco, Belize and, my favorite country, India. I keep copious notes wherever I go to ensure my writing is always accurate and atmospheric. The life I have led ensures I have rich seams to mine for material.

I live, when not travelling, in a small Leicestershire village. It is a happy life – reading and writing, fueled by mugs of tea and interspersed with visits to the theater.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Dianne Noble and ENT appreciate it.
