Media Reviews
Priya is 27 years old, an Indian girl who left India seven years ago to study in America where she meets a young man. They have been living together for two years and plan to marry soon. Priya makes a trip home where her mother is waiting ready to marry her off to a suitable Indian boy. It is the season of harvesting mangoes, the hottest time of the year, and Priya cannot summon up the courage to tell her parents and relations the truth - that she is living with a man and about to marry him. When she finally tells her father, then her mother, one surprise is waiting. It is a gentle, attractive novel with a great atmospheric feeling of India and its customs. Beautifully written and very easy to read.
