Publisher's Summary

A family, broken by the shattering turns of a single day, will do anything to find their way back to one another.

Lena Sharma is a successful San Francisco restaurateur. An immigrant, she’s cultivated an image of conservatism and tradition in her close-knit Indian community. But when Lena’s carefully constructed world begins to crumble, her ties to her daughter, Maya, and son, Sameer - both raised in thoroughly modern California - slip further away.

Maya, divorced once, becomes engaged to a man twelve years her junior: Veer Kapoor, the son of Lena’s longtime friend. Immediately Maya feels her mother’s disgrace and the judgment of an insular society she was born into but never chose, while Lena’s cherished friendship frays. Meanwhile, Maya’s younger brother, Sameer, struggles with an addiction that reaches a devastating and very public turning point, upending his already tenuous future.

As the mother, daughter, and son are compromised by tragedy, secrets, and misconceptions, they each must determine what it will take to rebuild their bonds and salvage what’s left of their family.

Outstanding!

With over 1,600 audiobooks in my library, I rarely write a review, but this is an excellent book with a unique storyline. The characters are compelling and the subject matter is thought-provoking. I listened all in one day because I wanted to see what happened next. This book is one that I’m going to remember.

Couldn't finish

Too slow and nothing exciting about this story. The first two chapters draw you in but it's downhill from then on.

Not intriguing

A good insight into a culture of closeness among families. The beginning was not interesting and I continued to see what would develop. Found it a bit dull, got better in the second half.

The narrator did a great job, bringing to life the nuances of each character.
