Publisher's Summary

When her father falls into a coma, Indian American photographer Sonya reluctantly returns to the family she'd fled years before. Since she left home, Sonya has lived on the run, free of any ties, while her soft-spoken sister, Trisha, has created a perfect suburban life, and her ambitious sister, Marin, has built her own successful career. But as these women come together, their various methods of coping with a terrifying history can no longer hold their memories at bay.
Buried secrets rise to the surface as their father - the victim of humiliating racism and perpetrator of horrible violence - remains unconscious. As his condition worsens, the daughters and their mother wrestle with private hopes for his survival or death, as well as their own demons and buried secrets.
Told with forceful honesty, Trail of Broken Wings reveals the burden of shame and secrets, the toxicity of cruelty and aggression, and the exquisite, liberating power of speaking and owning truth.

Just Annoying

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

i did not enjoy this book at all. Seemed like a Harlequin romance. "I miss him, but he's not mine to miss". He said to me, "I miss you". I replied, "But I'm not yours to miss". So annoying!

What could Sejal Badani have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was too long with many unlikable characters.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I liked her voice. Her accent fit the story perfectly.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Annoyance at the cliche relationships and the repetitiveness of phrases. I found the actions of many characters to be quite unbelievable.

Any additional comments?

I cannot recommend this book to anyone other than those who love a cheesy romance.

What a powerful story!

Beautifully read/ performed. Powerful book. Not for readers under 17; needs a mature mind to grasp all the nuances of abuse and its far reaching effects. Wonderful book, often kept me awake til wee hours off the morning while listening.
