This novel opens with Sibitri in Bengal, India, writing to the American granddaughter she doesn't know, Tara. Asked by Bela, her daughter, to convince Tara to stay in school, Sibitri reminisces about her family history, wrought by life's silences and omissions. Written in exquisite prose, this complicated family saga brings a full circle effect to its unfortunate characters, three strong women, bringing understanding to the enigmas of the past.
