Lakshmi, a bright student who grew up in poverty, marries and immigrates to the United States from India to provide a better life for herself and her family. Clinging to her cultural realities, she forces her American daughter, Pooja, into an arranged marriage, creating a rift of resentment. Pooja's daughter, Deepa, is an out lesbian to everyone but her family. The woman Deepa loves presents an ultimatum-come out to Pooja or break up-and Deepa is forced to confront her greatest fear. Three generations of Indian and Indian-American woman navigate the harsh slums of Chennai to the bustle of New York City, struggling through a cathartic generational collision to try to come together as a family.
Not a big fan of the writing style but I did enjoy this book. Loved the characters and following them throughout the story and watching their growth and development. I also enjoyed learning about the Indian cultural aspects.
