This was the first novel of Tania James and, for me, a lovely surprise that I founf one day while browsing in a bookstore.
It tells the story of an Indian family: a father with two daughters and their grandmother. One the girls receives an scholarship to go to the US and there she will have to rediscover herself and her family. A beautiful trip through India and America.
This is one of those books that finds its beauty in the details and in the simplicity of a family story. It is also one of those that makes you travel and really see the places it describes. A great start for James whose second novel is coming out this month and which I hope will be a delightful read, just like this one.
