Excellent book! I had never heard of this author, and a friend of mine recommended it. The characters are so full and genuine. This book really shows the complexity of relationships within a culture that still has arranged marriages but also gives a rich story about struggles to fit in when moving to a new country. It also speaks honestly about how India-born parents struggle when their children are born in a westernized country. A really wonderful read!
