Critical Praise

"[A] thoughtful work . . . This portrait of a mother and daughter transcends geographical limitations."

——Library Journal

"[A] novel that reveals so much talent . . . Badami writes graceful, evocative prose and plays complex variations on her themes. All her characters are vibrant and deftly drawn, and her narrators' opposing points of view create a poignant irony."

——Publisher's Weekly
