Description

What makes a marriage—love or compatibility? Passion or pragmatism? Shobhan Bantwal's compelling new novel explores the fascinating subject of arranged marriage, as a young Indian-American woman navigates the gulf between desire and tradition. . .

To Soorya Giri, arranged marriages have always seemed absurd. But while her career as an environmental lawyer has flourished, Soorya is still a virgin, living with her parents in suburban New Jersey. She wants to be married. And she is finally ready to do the unthinkable. . .

Soorya's first bridal viewings are as awkward as she anticipated. But then she's introduced to Roger Vadepalli. Self-possessed, intelligent, and charming, Roger is clearly interested in marriage and seems eager to clinch the deal. Attracted to him in spite of her mistrust, Soorya is also drawn into a flirtation with Lou, a widowed colleague who is far from her family's idea of an acceptable husband.

In choosing between two very different men, Soorya must reconcile her burgeoning independence and her conservative background. And she must decide what matters most to her—not just in a husband, but in a family, a culture, and a life. . .

"One of the best [novels] I've read this year. I couldn't put it down. . .this book is a gem!" —Mary Monroe, New York Times bestselling author on The Unexpected Son

"Compelling and memorable." —Mary Jo Putney, New York Times bestselling author on The Forbidden Daughter

"Vivid, rich. . .expertly portrays a young woman caught between love and duty, hope and despair." —Anjali Banerjee on The Dowry Bride

"Dazzles you with a taste of Desi culture in America." —Caridad Pineiro

Editorial Reviews

Soorya Giri, the only child of a well-known plastic surgeon, is a moderately successful attorney in New York City and should be quite a catch for any matchmaking mama and her son. Yet she is a failure in the marriage department, having been rejected by countless suitors over seven years. When her mother sets her up with Rajesh "Roger" Vadepalli, Soorya is drawn to his "bedroom eyes" but disconcerted when he informs her that all he wants is a rich wife to bankroll his theatrical productions. Roger and the Giri family are lovely, but self-centered Soorya never becomes less whiny or more appealing. Bantwal (The Unexpected Son) skips serious social issues to focus on the immigrant experience and family ties while describing the modern version of arranged marriages. By cherry-picking the cultural details that fit stereotypes, she makes it far too easy for non-Indian readers to nod along. (Aug.)
