Excellent book well worth reading for anyone open to exploring the culture completely different from ours.

In an understated way, Roy tackles the issues of sexual abuse of children, violence against women and misogyny in this story of an orphaned girl who, haunted by early events in her life, returns to India as an adult to explore her past. The novel is very well-written and easy to read despite its themes.

The set of of the story centers around Nomi who was taken into an evil Ashram, orphaned and abused. The author adds three senior women on a last trip together, and Suraj who accompanies Nomi later in life as she retraces the past. Somehow I thought the characters were to find a commonality and that the end would bring it all together. It didn't. I kept thinking I missed something. Disappointing.

I totally agree with the previous review. At the end, if you can call it that, I thought I was missing something. Some very good parts but this book left me unsatisfied.
