This collection of twenty-two short stories from gifted writers—a mixture of well-established voices and exciting new ones—addresses a multitude of experiences for modern Indian women living abroad.

Coping with new customs and expectations in the countries they now call home, the mainly female characters in these tales find themselves forced to choose whether to cling to their Indian culture, discard it completely, or find a way to bring the two worlds together. Learning to adjust and compromise brings with it special challenges, as themes of courtship, marriage, and betrayal—of losing and reforming one’s identity while trying to live up to Indian ideals in an alien environment—cause tragic and uplifting twists to each story.

Candid and full of hope, this thought-provoking anthology celebrates the characters’ lives and passions with all of the vibrancy and multifaceted appeal of India itself.
