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.
Growing up in Calcutta with a houseful of women without fathers is not easy task. Anju and Sudha are born within hours and live their lives as close as sisters. Their alternating narratives are gentle and lulling as they tell their stories of growing up becoming women and making choices and desicions of their own.
Very good read!
This is a wonderful book, I could not put it down!
What a beautifully written book!!!
Beautifully written book with wonderful imagry. Sister of My Heart is the story of a lifelong bond of two girls. Some rivalry but mostly about their deep love for each other. Interesting twist to the story. The door was left open for the sequel.
