Product description

From Booklist

At the height of the mango season, 27-year-old Priya returns home to India to the scent of ripened fruits, ready for the family pickling ritual that has been their tradition for as long as she can remember. The sights and scents of India are sensations that Priya has forgotten in her time away, and reacquainting herself with Indian culture soon loses its luster when the family elders begin to question her status as a single woman. They understand that Priya has an illustrious career in California and will probably not stay in India, but they are unaware that she is engaged to an American man who is not Indian and thereby not what they consider a proper husband. While restraint is not part of Priya's rebellious nature, she is stifling her secret for fear of losing the love of family and permanently forging a wedge between the life she dreams of and the legacy of cultural heritage. Malladi submerges the reader in fascinating cultural traditions and rich foods garnished with saucy humor. Elsa Gaztambide
