really liked it

This was engrossing read. The narrator and main character transforms from a village girl to a city girl in India, and then from a city woman to a village woman in the U.S. Her calm storytelling style contrasts with the violence and harsh beauty she sees along the way. Her cultural education at each level is fascinating to observe. This is a brilliant study in human observation and perspective.
