With personalities like chalk and cheese, they were different but close while growing up. They promised to be with each other, support each other through life, however life had other plans for them. Circumctances forced them apart, far apart. Puja lead an ordered, controlled life in the UK, where emotions had no place.

Will the bond they shared as children be stong enough to bing them together again? Set mainly in India, it resonates with flavours and colours of the place and the emotions that the characters go through. I especially loved the descriptions, be it of the food that Sharda cooks or the emotions, you can almost taste the food and you can feel the pain, the sadness and the joys.
Their childhood is so beautifully portrayed. A beautifully narrated story of two sisters, of human emotions that come close to destroying the bond between them, and the strength of emotions and shared lives. Her books evoke vivid imagery of India and food and makes for very compelling reads. Like Liked by 1 person.
