Publisher's Summary

Handsome anesthesiologist Neel is sure he can resist his family’s pleas that he marry a "good" Indian girl. With a girlfriend and a career back in San Francisco, the last thing Neel needs is an arranged marriage. But that’s precisely what he gets. His bride, Leila, a 30-year-old teacher, comes with her own complications. They struggle to reconcile their own desires with others’ expectations in this story of two people, two countries, and two ways of life that may be more compatible than they seem.

Indian, not really.

The story line was good, but I was disappointed and very annoyed with the mispronounced Indian words. It made the story seem less authentic.

One of my favorite stories in a long long time

Some reviews call this is Chick story – maybe it is, but I loved it. This is a story of East meets West and Indian traditions. I could really relate to the story because I am white and married to an Indian doctor. Each character is weaved throughout the story effortlessly.
I just bought the author's other book, the invitation, and look forward to reading that as well.
