From the bestselling and critically-acclaimed author of The Space Between US and The Weight Of Heaven, comes a stunning new novel about the power of friendship.
Armaiti has been living a comfortable life in the United States for over twenty years, a far cry from her days as a revolutionary university student in India. When she learns that she is terminally ill with only a few months to live, it is her last wish to be reunited with the three best friends she left behind in Bombay -- Laleh, Kavita, and Nishta. But Armaiti's request forces the women to confront secrets they've kept long buried, and they'll need to rely on each other once again to make things right.
The four friends of Thrity Umrigar's affecting fifth novel are burdened by secrets they've chosen to carry on their own for years, but it is through their reunion that each woman is able to find the strength to face the past and finally let it go. Thrity Umrigar offers readers a potent, moving meditation on friendship and the power of love to set us free.
