Summary

Grab your passport and let the Shergill sisters take you on a journey....  

Meet the Shergill Sisters. The know-it-all, Rajni. The drama queen, Jezmeen. The golden child, Shirina. 

They have never been close. But their mother’s dying wish was for them to take a pilgrimage across India together, to carry out her final rites. And so, the sisters are thrown together for one last (and very strange) family holiday. 

The three women seem to have nothing in common, apart from the fact that each of them has a secret she would prefer to keep hidden. But as one unlikely adventure follows another, it’s not long before they start to realise that they might need each other now more than ever. After all, there are no secrets between sisters....

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.
