Asha and Reet are two sisters living in India in the 1970's. They are opposites in that Asha is tomboyish and bookish, while Reet is so gorgeous that lovesick boys follow her around and throw flowers her way. Their father is in New York, looking to secure a job so that he can bring his family over to the States. In the meantime, Asha, Reet and their mother live with their conservative relatives. It's an uncomfortable living situation when Reet has dreams of freedom, playing ball, and becoming a psychologist--she desires to fulfill goals her relatives disagree with. Reet is strong and determined in making things right when tragedy strikes and she drifts apart from her sister. This novel enraptured me, taking my imagination to another time and place as I became fully engaged with the characters.
