Deborah Fochler, November 2, 2007 (view all comments by Deborah Fochler)
An unusual and heartwarming look at the relationship between a mother and daughter and an extended family. Mixed with food, holidays, disappointment, extended family and friends and most of all - love - unconditional yet complicated. I loved this book - it gave me great insight into another culture though in the end we are all the same. We love our families but cant live with them or without them.

An elegant tapestry of East and West, peppered with food and ceremony, wisdom and sensuality, this luminous novel breathes new life into timeless themes...and an excellent book review novel for women's clubs, many discussable issues. As a mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, wife & friend, I could identify with the universal struggles plus with a scheduled trip to India late this year, I loved the descriptions, language, customs & more!

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "The age-old intergenerational struggle between mothers and daughters gets a curried twist in Pradhan's debut, in which the subcontinent meets the modern West. As children, first-generation Americans Kiran Deshpande, Preity Chawla Lindstrom and Rani McGuiness Tomashot gently mocked their Indian mothers, collectively nicknamed 'The Hindi-Bindi Club' for their Old World leanings. Though the three are now successful adults, they aren't necessarily seen as such by their parents. For starters, none married Indian men. But now, Kiran's parents may get their chance to 'semi-arrange' a marriage for their divorced daughter as she considers the possibility that there may be something to the old ways. Preity, mostly happily married to business school beau Eric, carries a small torch for a long-lost love — a Muslim her parents didn't approve of — and considers seeking him out. Meanwhile, rocket scientist Rani's passion for art starts to pay off as she becomes spiritually listless. Pradhan's debut is breezy (there are enough recipes dotting the narrative to fill a cookbook), though it touches on not-so sunny issues — prejudice, breast cancer, infidelity. The prose isn't dynamite and the characters are stock, but the novel easily fulfills its ready-made requirements." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
