Summary

Full of warmth and laugh-out-loud funny, the new novel from the author of Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows

British-born Punjabi sisters Rajni, Jezmeen and Shirina have never been close but when their mother died, she had only one request: that they take a pilgrimage across India to carry out her final rites. While an extended family holiday is the last thing they want, each sister has her own reasons to run away from her life.

Rajni is the archetypal know-it-all eldest, but her son dropped a devastating bombshell before she left, and for the first time she doesn’t know what the future holds.

Middle sister Jezmeen was always a loudmouth, translating her need for attention into life as a struggling actress. But her career is on the skids after an incident went viral, and now she’s desperate to find her voice again.

Shirina has always been the golden child who confounded expectations by having an arranged marriage and moving to the other side of the world. But her perfect life isn’t what it seems, and time is running out to make the right choice.

As the miles rack up on their jaunt across India, the secrets of the past and present are sure to spill out....

Well Worth Listening

The story of three sisters, who visit India, in response to their dead mother's request. Each has a secret or challenge they are hiding from the others. While they have not been that close, due really to growing up circumstances, the trip eventually bonds them together. I liked the Indian setting and the cultural values shown. Some very shocking from my viewpoint. I liked though how the book highlighted and dealt with the issues raised. The only question I still wonder about is the sore ankle the eldest sister had. It went nowhere. The narrator did a very good job on the whole and added to my enjoyment of the book. The only thing that disappointed me a little was her voices for each sister was not apparent to my ear anyway! Other than that delightful.
