Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Thrity Umrigar won the Nieman Fellowship and earned a finalist spot for the PEN/Beyond Margins award with The Space Between Us. Set in modern-day India, this evocative novel follows upper-middle-class Parsi housewife Sera Dubash and 65-year-old illiterate household worker Bhima as they make their way through life. Though separated by their stations in life, the two women share bonds of womanhood that prove far stronger than the divisions of class or culture.

A Story that stays with you

The story of Bhima and her granddaughter Maya is s searing one. Having been forced to go from tiny but respectable apartment to the slums, Bhima continually tries to keep moving forward. It is hard to review The Space Between Us without giving the story away. I'll just say I recommend this to readers who can take a trip through a difficult and twisting story. I am still chewing on the ending and will go back and listen to that part again. Excellent narrator.

What did you like best about this story?

The depiction of characters that at first glance ... vastly different. Yet, this author so exquisitely wove this tale that ultimately revealed how alike we are no matter our geography, social class or race.

What does Purva Bedi bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Beautiful voice, sensitive and nuanced performance ... brilliantly done

Any additional comments?

This is such a beautiful story ... the characters truly come to life. In my top 3 of audible books.
