In Mansi Shah’s stunning debut novel, a family tragedy beckons a first-generation immigrant to the city of her birth, where she grapples with her family’s past in search of where she truly belongs.


After her parents moved her and her brother to America, Preeti Desai never meant to tear her family apart. All she did was fall in love with a white Christian carnivore instead of a conventional Indian boy. Years later, with her parents not speaking to her and her controversial relationship in tatters, all Preeti has left is her career at a prestigious Los Angeles law firm.


But when Preeti receives word of a terrible accident in the city where she was born, she returns to India, where she’ll have to face her estranged parents…and the complicated past they left behind. Surrounded by the sights and sounds of her heritage, Preeti catches a startling glimpse of her family’s battles with class, tradition, and sacrifice. Torn between two beautifully flawed cultures, Preeti must now untangle what home truly means to her.


4-4,5 STARS

This book was fantastic , I really liked the premise of it. It has small chapters and it was fast paced . 

The author did such a good job with the descriptions of India I felt like I was a part of the story , I enjoyed Preeti’s journey from the beginning till the end . This one has to do with family and culture . Preeti lives in the United States but a family accident will make her go back to India where she will face the cultural difference between the two places . “My family was no different from every other Indian family we knew, and putting on the pretense of being a happy family was more important than actually being one.” This story made me learn a lot about Indian culture that I didn’t know , I find it intense and I love the writing . This is definitely a story about finding your identity and where do you belong .
