Once again, Thrity Umrigar has led her readers into a less-travelled-road. Her main protagonist, Themina, her son, daughter-in-law and much-loved Grandson play pivotal roles in this story. Themina is thrust onto a journey as to what she should choose - return to India or remain in the U.S. The story is one of belief in family, hope and identity. An excellent read!

This particular novel left me feeling positive, I liked the way that she interjected poetry at times which leaves you with something to think about.
