Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Sister of My Heart comes a spellbinding tale of mothers and daughters, love and cultural identity.

Rakhi, a young painter and single mother, is struggling to come to terms with her relationship with ex-husband Sonny, a hip Bay Area DJ, and with her dreamteller mother, who has rarely spoken about her past or her native India. Rakhihas her hands full, juggling a creative dry spell, raising her daughter, and trying to save the Berkeley teahouse she and her best friend, Belle, own. But greater challenges are to come. When a national tragedy turns her world upside down and Rakhi needs her mother’s strength and wisdom more than ever, she loses her in a freak car accident. But uncovering her mother’s dream journals allows Rakhi to discover her mother's long-kept secrets and sacrifices - and ultimately to confront her fears, forge a new relationship with her father, and revisit Sonny's place in her heart.

Too metaphysical

I didn't identify with any of these characters. The story line was so so, but I really didn't like all the metaphysical weirdness. I also got tired of listening to the narrator's interpretation of the little girl's voice which was a constant whine. Not this author's best work in my opinion.
