Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anju is the daughter of an upper-caste Calcutta family; her cousin Sudha is the daughter of the black sheep of that family. Sudha is as beautiful, tenderhearted, and serious as Anju is plain, whip-smart, and defiant. Yet since the day they were born, Sudha and Anju have been bonded in ways even their mothers cannot comprehend.<P>The cousins' bond is shattered, however, when Sudha learns a dark family secret. Urged into arranged marriages, their lives take sudden, opposite turns: Sudha becomes the dutiful daughter-in-law of a rigid small-town household, while Anju goes to America with her new husband and learns to live her own life of secrets. Then tragedy strikes them both, and the women discover that, despite the distance that has grown between them, they have only each other to turn to. Set in the two worlds of India and America, this is an exceptionally moving novel of love, friendship, and compelling courage.

Synopsis:

From the award-winning author of "Mistress of Spices" comes the bestselling novel, now in paperback, about the bond between two women and the family secrets and romantic jealousies that threaten to tear them apart.

Sister of My Heart is now one of my favorite books. Set in India, it follows two girls through their childhood into their adulthood and marriage. It's written beautifully, and I couldn't put the book down! It's such an interesting story of relationships between women, and it's full of joy, laughter, heartache, tears, and surprises. I definitely recommend it!
