For decades they have remained close, sharing treasured
recipes, honored customs, and the challenges of women
shaped by ancient ways yet living modern lives. They are
the Hindi-Bindi Club, a nickname given by their American
daughters to the mothers who left India to start anewâ€”
daughters now grown and facing struggles of their own.
For Kiran, Preity, and Rani, adulthood bears the indelible
stamp of their upbringing, from the ways they tweak their
mothersâ€™ cooking to suit their Western lifestyles to the
ways they reject their mothersâ€™ most fervent beliefs. Now,
bearing the disappointments and successes of their chosen
paths, these daughters are drawn inexorably home.
Kiran, divorced, will seek a new beginningâ€”this time
requesting the aid of an ancient tradition she once
dismissed. Preity will confront an old heartbreakâ€”and a
hidden shame. And Rani will face her demons as an artist
and a wife. All will question whether they have the courage
of the Hindi-Bindi Club, to hold on to their dreamsâ€”or to
create new ones.
An elegant tapestry of East and West, peppered with food
and ceremony, wisdom and sensuality, this luminous novel
breathes new life into timeless themes.
