Our world is made up of multiple cultures and people. Understanding them all is impossible, but through books like this we are given a glimpse in to the life of some. My heritage is a mix of cultures, as are most people's. If it were not for people of different cultures marrying and having families with one another, many of us would not be here today.
This book is a delight to read. The reader follows the life of Neena who hails from India and travels to America, later returning to India. We see her grow through the story, her assimilation into American culture while holding on to her Indian culture. It helps the reader to see a new culture and learn more about their way of life and beliefs while also showing the challenge of moving to a new culture, the differences between the two worlds, and all of the changes one goes through.
The writing style of this book is one that is easy to read and flows smoothly from one chapter to the next. If she is from a bicultural family, you would not be able to tell based upon the writing. She writes with professionalism, yet engages readers through emotion and descriptive writing. I was not distracted by grammatical or mechanics errors. It was well written and edited, making it ready for publication and distribution.
If you have ever wondered what it is like to move from your native home to another country where the culture is completely different from your own, this book will give you a better understanding. And if you like stories with an Indian influence, this is the one to read. Definitely a good read.
