Loved the book but a couple of parts were unrealistic, like Tara falling for one of the 'goondas.' The author should have introduced a new man for her. Also, why didn't Madam come looking for Mukta at the end? I'm sure one of her goons would have been sent to do the job.
An incredibly powerful book about family relationships in India. It was recommended by an Indian-American friend of mine and the story of the two women was overpowering.
A compelling novel. The saddest part is that this is most likely still occurring to this day. Should be a must read for all of the politicians in D.C.!!
A moving story of two girls in relatively modern day India.
A story of hope, survival, love, hardship, family, forgiveness and redemption, well worth reading.
It's sad to think of what so many women and girls worldwide endure to this day. Here is a small glimpse into their world.
Nice debut novel. Definitely reminds you of Shilpi Gowda or Khaled Hosseini's writing. Very poetic too.
"Silence crept into our lives, allowing us to keep our nightmares and our thoughts to ourselves. We simply carried on, pretending it had never happened."
"Shame rose in me like a violent storm."
