Publisher's Summary

Dr. Nikhil "Nic" Joshi had it all - marriage, career, purpose - until, while working for Doctors without Borders in a Mumbai slum, his wife, Jen, discovered a black market organ-transplant ring. Before she could expose the truth, Jen was killed.

Two years after the tragedy, Nic is a cruise ship doctor who spends his days treating seasickness and sunburn and his nights in a boozy haze. On one of those blurry evenings on deck, Nic meets a woman who makes a startling claim: she received Jen's heart in a transplant and has a message for him. Nic wants to discount Jess Koirala's story as absurd, but there is something about her reckless desperation that resonates despite his doubts.

Jess has spent years working her way out of a nightmarish life in Calcutta and into a respectable Bollywood dance troupe. Now she faces losing the one thing that matters - her young son. She needs to uncover the secrets Jen risked everything for; but the unforeseen bond that results between her and Nic is both a lifeline and a perilous complication.

Delving beyond the surface of modern Indian-American life, acclaimed author Sonali Dev's pause-resisting novel is both riveting and emotionally rewarding - an extraordinary story of human connection, bravery, and hope.

    "realist scenario but some repeating of theme"

    interesting current day plot but became repetitive as characters dealt with same emotions again and again. could be a more developed plot.

    Story
    "Somewhat disappointing..."

    Rarely do I exclaim out loud: "really??" While listening to a story, but did more than once here. The story was pleasant enough, but parts were simply preposterous and there were logic leaps throughout. Further, some parts had far too much detail (sex and rape scenes could rival detail of 50 shades of grey!) while other parts and/or characters were not developed nearly enough. I love books based in or connected with other cultures and I felt that there were opportunities here to provide context and color that were left on the table.

    Story
    "Tedious"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Having the story move along more quickly. Each time there was a significant event, the author retreats once again into "adorable dimples or caramel skin". I found myself turning it off in exasperation until I simply could not listen to it any more.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sonali Dev again?

    Probably not


    What three words best describe Soneela Nankani’s performance?

    very good dialects


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry, could not even finish it.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel guilty slamming this book because I am sure others will like it. Just not my cup of jardeeling.
