As one follows the struggles of Karen adjusting not only to a new country, but a completely unknown future with her mentally challenged son, there is always hope that her life will turn out happy.   The endearing story of Maggie, despite the odds against her in her personal relationship,  always allowed her caring and kind nature to shine through.  Wallace desperately trying to find meaning in his life and Rajeev succumbing to traditional beliefs and choosing not to open up to the changing world around him, are some of the colourful characters you will find.

The patchwork of intricately woven customs, traditions and ideas with exotic locations and equally interesting people, will make this book capture your imagination.  You will not put it down until you find out the ending to these heart-warming stories.
