This is the story of a family in Malaysia, spanned over 4 generations. The story starts with Lakshmi, and ends with her great-granddaughter, Nisha. Lakshmi was a child bride, married to a man from another country with promises of riches and a grand life. This story tells of the family's hardships, temptations, of happiness, sadness, and everything in between.
I'm torn between giving this book 3 and 4 stars. 3.5 would be good for me. I found the book interesting, but it didn't really suck me in like I hope with most books.
