Passionate embryologist, Savarna, is in a complicated
relationship, with two different women, when she is told
that she Must have a baby. Her conservative East Indian
American parents are desperate for her to conceive, in spite
of her "not being married". They insist that she is the last
in line of a great spiritual lineage.
In the process of choosing her lover and having doubts about
her ability, or desire to conceive, Savarna begins to
question the necessity of biology and lineage within her
parents' beliefs and becomes forever fascinated with the
process of conception and the definition of family.
Threads of Dan Brown (DaVinci Code), Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
(Sister of My Heart) and The L Word (Tv series) flavor this
colorful tale of awakening, romance and mystery.
