About this product
- DescriptionFor decades they have remained close, sharing treasured recipes, hored customs, and the challenges of women shaped by ancient ways yet living modern lives. They are the Hindi-Bindi Club, a nickname given by their American daughters to the mothers who left India to start anew--daughters w grown and facing struggles of their own. <p/>For Kiran, Preity, and Rani, adulthood bears the indelible stamp of their upbringing, from the ways they tweak their mothers' cooking to suit their Western lifestyles to the ways they reject their mothers' most fervent beliefs. Now, bearing the disappointments and successes of their chosen paths, these daughters are drawn inexorably home. <p/>Kiran, divorced, will seek a new beginning--this time requesting the aid of an ancient tradition she once dismissed. Preity will confront an old heartbreak--and a hidden shame. And Rani will face her demons as an artist and a wife. All will question whether they have the courage of the Hindi-Bindi Club, to hold on to their dreams--or to create new ones. <p/>An elegant tapestry of East and West, peppered with food and ceremony, wisdom and sensuality, this lumius vel breathes new life into timeless themes.
