Much conflict and resolution, the end is left to our interpretation.

Haunting lies we keep to ourselves have a way of escaping and transforming our narrative. This book shed light to Lakshmi's pure intent to protect and to feed -a mother's heart...and the desperation for human connection. Umrigar had many insights that made me laugh out loud. Absolutely loved the stories!

So much pain. So many secrets. She felt burdened by the weight of other people's secrets, their grief, their trust, their blinking anticipation, their eager faces, the hunger with which they looker at her, expecting answers, expecting cures, expecting miracles.
