"An absorbing tale of contrasts. . . . Cherian tells the story with quiet strength." ? San Francisco Chronicle Handsome anesthesiologist Neel is sure he can resist his family's pleas that he marry a "good" Indian girl. With a girlfriend and a career back in San Francisco, the last thing Neel needs is an arranged marriage. But that's precisely what he gets. His bride, Leila, a thirty-year-old teacher, comes with her own complications. They struggle to reconcile their own desires with others' expectations in this story of two people, two countries, and two ways of life that may be more compatible than they seem.

I absolutely loved this novel. I am a big fan of renting books from the library, but after stumbling upon this one, I knew I had to buy this to add to my bookshelf. This novel gives such an interesting perspective and insights to arranged marriages and the Indian culture. I hope she writes more.
