Summary
A silken yet tensile saga about the lives of women in India and as immigrants in America. Sabitri has left Kolkata and her famous sweetshop behind to return to her childhood village, where her panicked daughter, Bela, reaches her from Houston. Distraught over her daughter's decision to drop out of college, Bela wants Sabitri to write to her granddaughter, whom she has never met, and tell Tara why this is a terrible mistake. Reluctantly Sabitri picks up her pen and is soon flooded with memories of herself at that age, a servant's daughter who dared to dream of college. Gliding back and forth across the decades and dramatizing in every episode a life-changing encounter, Divakaruni tells each rebellious and stoic woman's heartrending story of risk-all passion, crushing disappointment, disastrous misunderstandings, and deep wells of strength
