Another compeling novel by Divakaruni that depicts the exotic flavor of India and the issues surrounding the Indian culture in America. Flavored with the mystery of the Dream Interpreter and her daughter's struggle to understand what she's never been taught but can deeply feel.

From the bestselling author of Mistress of Spices comes a spellbounding tale of mothers and daughters, love and belonging. Rakhi, a young painter and single mother, is struggling to come to terms with her relationship with ex-husband, Sonny, a hip Bay Area DJ, and with her dream-teller mother, who has rarely spoken about her past or her native India. Rakhi ha her hands full, juggling a creative dry spell, raising her daughter, and trying to save the Berkeley teahouse she co-owns. But greater challenges are to come. After a national tragedy turns her world upside down, Rakhi loses her mother in a freak car accident. But uncovering her mother's dream journals allows Rakhi to discover her mother's long kept secrets, and ultimately to confront her fears and revisit Sonny's place in her heart.

It's okay, but I found it a little dull.
