Publisher's Summary

The beloved characters of Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's best-selling novel Sister of My Heart are reunited in this powerful narrative that challenges the emotional bond between two lifelong friends, as the husband of one becomes dangerously attracted to the other.

Anju and Sudha formed an astounding, almost psychic connection during their childhood in India. When Anju invites Sudha, a single mother in Calcutta, to come live with her and her husband, Sunil, in California, Sudha foolishly accepts, knowing full well that Sunil has long desired her. As Sunil's attraction rises to the surface, the trio must struggle to make sense of the freedoms of America - and of the ties that bind them to India and to one another.

    "Good story, horrible narration"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator's voice is so annoying it is sometimes hard to listen to. She speaks in this breathy, almost whisper, voice that doesn't fit the story at all. And her voice for Sunil (the male character) is laughable. Her pronunciation of the Indian words is so bad that at times I don't know what she is talking about. I am about half way through the book, and am enjoying the story. It is an accurate portrayal of the lives of many Indian woman and the way they think. But I would encourage others to read the book rather than listen to it.

    "Good"

    Story was ok, good. Was slow a read. The last quarter of the book was best.
