I loved this book ,this book was like reading a great story intertwined with a special bed time story(or a family history) read to you by a favorite aunt,At the core it is a story of 2 girls who are connected as family but are not.One who feels like it is her karma to make things right.It has sorrow and beauty all rolled into an exotic culture.(Like me who knows nothing about Indian culture or mythology)I enjoyed learning about people of another culture,yet the themes are universal.
Story of Sudha and Anju, cousins in Calcutta, but who grew up differently though together. Their close bonds are shattered when one discovers a dark family secret. Arranged marriages, moves to America, and tragedy pepper this book. I enjoyed it very much.
Excellent storyline-beautifully written. A bridge between India and America, the peoples of each, the realtionship of family members,
Highly recommend. Kept me intrigued.
