Nectar in A SievePaperback - 2002
Rukmani, a peasant from a village in India, is married to a man she has never met at age twelve, and moves with him to his rented farmland. Over the years their marriage fills with love, mutual respect, and children: one daughter and many sons. But a tannery built near their village forever alters Rukmani's life, taking away farmland and silence; and while it provides jobs, they come with great costs.
