Summary

When Uma discovers her husband's infidelity just hours before his untimely death, the carefully woven threads of her life begin to unravel. 

Struggling to manage the grief of those around her, she escapes to a remote cottage by the coast where she swims in the winter sea, cooks the forgotten Keralan dishes of her childhood and begins the search for her husband's lover. 

It isn't long before Uma realises what she must do to pick up the tattered threads of her life. But will her choices jeopardise the only family she has left?

Yawnsville!!!!

Very unlikable main character A greedy woman always looking for the next man to sleep with. Yuck! . The narrator's male voices are God awful monotonous grunts.

Immerse yourself into Uma’s world

Uma loses her husband at the start of this novel... and we spend the rest of it nestled in her interior world, making sense of it all. This is a beautifully written, all consuming read. A reminder of the power of truth and choice and change.
Highly recommended
My husband, 14 year old daughter and I have all enjoyed it.
