Synopsis:
The possibility of change, of starting anew, in this stunning beautiful and poignant collection of short stories, is at once terrifying and filled with promise.For those Indian-born women living new lives in America, independence is a mixed blessing.It means walking the tightrope between old treasured beliefs and surprising newfound desires, and understanding the emotions which that conflict brings.Together these stories create a tapestry of existence as colourful, as delicate and as enduring as the finest silk sari.

Review:
A deeply moving debut collection of stories featuring Indian-born women whose ties to tradition and memories of home intrude on their new lives in America. Each story is complete in itself, but together they create a tapestry as colorful, as delicate, and as enduring as the finest silk sari.

From the Publisher

Review:

"A remarkably strong debut . . . The all-too-imperfect lives of Divakaruni's heroines, like precious gems, are unrecognized treasures, worthy of being praised, protected and held dear."-- San Jose Mercury News

"Both universal and unique."-- Kirkus Reviews

"Beautifully told stories of transformed lives . . . Both liberated and trapped by cultural changes on both sides of the ocean, these women struggle fiercely to carve out an identity of their own." --San Francisco Chronicle

"These are ravishingly beautiful stories, some profoundly sad, others full of revelation, all unforgettable." --Booklist
