Synopsis: Meet Akhila: forty-five and single, an income-tax clerk, and a woman who has never been allowed to live her own life until the day she purchases a one-way train ticket. In an intimate all-women sleeping car, Akhila asks five women the question that has been haunting her: can a woman stay single and be happy, or does she need a man to feel complete? This wonderfully atmospheric, deliciously warm novel takes the reader into the heart of women's lives in contemporary India, whose dilemmas are the same as others around the world.

Description in Spanish: Akhila, una mujer de cuarenta y tantos años, soltera, y de quien ha dependido siempre su familia, siente un repentino impulso de huir de todo. En el furgón de un tren que atraviesa la India en dirección al sur, se encuentra con otras cinco viajeras con las que comparte confidencias.

Janaki, una madre confundida; Margaret, una profesora de química con un marido tiránico; Prabha, una sumisa esposa que busca su verdadera identidad; Sheela, una muchacha de catorce años que comprende los últimos deseos de su abuela mejor que nadie; Marikolanthu, que ha vivido más experiencias que todas ellas juntas; y Akhila, que espera que sus historias cambien su vida. Seis personajes que se encuentran en esta cálida novela para descubrir el amor, el matrimonio, la familia, la amistad y el trabajo en la India y en el mundo.
