I was captivated by this book. The author tells the compelling story of a man, the woman he marries and their friends, starting out in Mumbai. Along the way, the author includes paragraphs of information about India's customs and culture. I stayed up late finishing the book, as I wanted to find out if Jai and Kaahi were reunited, as they were torn apart by some event hinted at in the beginning. The author builds suspense in subtle ways, giving us vignettes of their lives in Mumbai and later in the US, making us care about the characters. India Was One is a unique book, one I highly recommend to anyone interested in love, friendship, loyalty and suffering, no matter what their culture.
