Publisher Description

She’s always done what was expected of her. Until…


When 30-year-old Seattle-based Indian housewife Mira Sood is blindsided by her husband’s extramarital affair, her three-year arranged marriage is shattered. Humiliated, heartbroken, near-broke, and facing the united dissension of her orthodox family, Mira is desperate to rebuild her life. She moves in with her rebel cousin, searches for any job that will take her, and impulsively signs up for a half-marathon race. There’s just one problem—Mira's experience with running starts and ends with running to catch the bus.


With herself as her biggest critic and doubter, Mira commits to the race and is assisted by entrepreneur Andy Fitzgerald, a handsome, elite marathoner who helps her create a training schedule and personal goals. When the lines of friendship begin to blur, Mira realizes she’s facing an even bigger challenge.


Can Mira embrace her stronger, more independent self—risking another heartbreak and disappointing her family—or will she once again play it too safe and let the possibility of happiness slip away?

A New Mantra

As an Asian American in the PNW, I related a lot to Mira’s journey as she learned to navigate her love for her family, their internalized misogyny, and their, quite frankly, emotionally abusive relationship. Laila is best girl and Andy is a dream. The story additionally highlights how sports don’t have to be competitive to be empowering, but also shows how accessibility plays a huge factor when it is competitive, whether it be gear, training facilities, mentorship etc.

Well-developed writing style with research evident in the writing. There are occasions where the author explains what’s already been said implicitly, which can feel a bit patronizing and repetitive, along with some recycled phrasing. Aside from that, this was a good read. Lots of food. Made me hungry.
