Recommended for: fans of Lahiri and Zadie Smith
Read in November, 2008

This book started out a bit slow, but before I knew it Lahiri had my heart in her hands. By the last page I had tears in my eyes -- if I hadn't been on a plane it might have been a full-on cry. And this doesn't spoil anything -- I wasn't even sure if I was crying from happiness or sorrow, or just plain emotionally overwhelmed.
