The Heart Is a Shifting Sea
- Love and Marriage in Mumbai
- By: Elizabeth Flock
- Narrated by: Sunil Malhotra, Nicol Zanzarella
- Length: 12 hrs and 46 mins
In 21st-century India, tradition is colliding with Western culture, a clash that touches the lives of everyday Indians from the wealthiest to the poorest. While ethnicity, class, and religion are influencing the nation's development, so too are pop culture and technology - an uneasy fusion whose impact is most evident in the institution of marriage. The Heart Is a Shifting Sea introduces three couples whose relationships illuminate these sweeping cultural shifts in dramatic ways.

The Heart is a Shifting Sea is a beautifully written book that is captivating from the very start. I had planned to listen to it during my daily commute, but ended up listening in one long session - I couldn't stop! The narration was also very well done, and I cannot recommend this audiobook highly enough. This is one of those few books that I will listen to again and again...I can't wait for her next book!
