This is a tale of obsession and betrayal. This is a poisoned love story. But not between lovers—between mother and daughter.
Tara and Antara, the woman and her angry shadow. But which one is which?
Sharp as a blade and compulsively readable, Burnt Sugar slowly untangles the knot of memory and fiction that binds two women together, revealing the truth that lies beneath.
