Publisher's Summary

"Divakaruni's descriptive, evocative writing makes you race through the book and then mourn its completion. For those who are fans of the author, this is a must-listen. For those who have yet to discover her, this book is a must." (People)

Troubled by the silence that surrounds her parents' death, 17-year old Korobi Roy clings to her only inheritance from them: the unfinished love note she found hidden in her mother's book of poetry. But when her grandfather dies, the young woman discovers a dark secret that will finally explain her past.

"A coming of age novel in the best tradition, with a heroine who is both infuriating and endearing and most importantly, brave - Divakaruni's gift is story telling and she is generous with her gift." (Huffington Post)
