Verdict It isn’t surprising that this debut novel by an Indian Canadian writer won the 2011 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize. Basran displays her talent for beautifully constructed sentences and well-developed characters, and her story convincingly portrays the intricacies of following your heart, as well as the effect those choices have on the people around you. The characters will grab the reader emotionally as the novel takes unexpected turns. Meena will not easily be forgotten. Highly recommended for reading groups and readers who enjoy literary novels about the immigrant experience.—Madeline Solien, Deerfield P.L., IL(c) Copyright 2011.
