Product description

Review

“a convincing testament to the enduring power of place.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Synopsis

This is a beautifully written novel about a widow in Ohio dealing with the loss of her husband and country. After he died she has to make a decision: go back to India, the place where her fondest memories were born, or remain in Ohio with her only son and his American wife. She marvels at how successful he has been adjusting to American culture - eating American food, wearing American clothes, and even speaking the way Americans do - but, she questions whether or not she will be able to assimilate herself. With the voice of her deceased husband to guide her, she struggles to gain perspective on her new life while watching the drama of her son's life as an immigrant in American unfold.
