Publisher Description

A woman in an arranged marriage is liberated by a desire that threatens her family and future

An only child raised to become a dutiful wife, Astha is filled with unnamed longings and untapped potential. In the privacy of her middle-class Indian home, she dreams of the lover who will touch her soul. But her future was mapped out long ago: betrothal to a man with impeccable credentials, with motherhood to follow.

At first, Astha’s arranged union with handsome, worldly Hemant brings her great joy and passion. But even after bearing him a son and daughter, she remains unfulfilled. Her search for meaning takes her into a world of art and activism . . . and a relationship that could bring her the love and freedom she desires. But at what cost to her marriage and family?

An amazingly written Indian story

So well written. You could hear the way Indian people talk in the narrative. Each aspect of Indian life is accurate and authentic in the narrative. I loved it.
