Publisher Description

"An absorbing tale of contrasts…Cherian tells the story with quiet strength." —San Francisco Chronicle

Handsome anesthesiologist Neel is sure he can resist his family’s pleas that he marry a "good" Indian girl. With a girlfriend and a career back in San Francisco, the last thing Neel needs is an arranged marriage. But that’s precisely what he gets. His bride, Leila, a thirty-year-old teacher, comes with her own complications. They struggle to reconcile their own desires with others’ expectations in this story of two people, two countries, and two ways of life that may be more compatible than they seem.

A Good Indian Wife

Loved it so much I read it again after I'd read it the first time. Being from an Indian background I could totally relate - one of the best books I've read ever ...
