Review:

"[Thirty] Umrigar (THE SPACE BETWEEN US) continues her exploration of cultural divides in this beautifully written and incisive novel about an American couple's experience in India....Umrigar establishes herself as a singularly gifted storyteller."

Book Description: HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2009. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 232 x 162 mm. Brand New Book. When Frank and Ellie Benton lose their only child, seven-year-old Benny, to a sudden illness, the perfect life they had built is shattered. Filled with wrenching memories, their Ann Arbor home becomes unbearable, and their marriage founders. But an unexpected job half a world away offers them an opportunity to start again. Life in Girbaug, India, holds promise--and peril--when Frank befriends Ramesh, a bright, curious boy who quickly becomes the focus of the grieving man s attentions. Haunted by memories of his dead son, Frank is consumed with making his family right--a quest that will lead him down an ever-darkening path with stark repercussions. Filled with satisfyingly real characters and glowing with local color, The Weight of Heaven is a rare glimpse of a family and a country struggling under pressures beyond their control. In a devastating look at cultural clashes and divides, Umrigar illuminates how slowly we recover from unforgettable loss, how easily good intentions can turn evil, and how far a person will go to build a new world for those he loves.
