As university students back in the 1970’s Laleh, Kavita, Nishta, and Armaiti were inseparable. Yet in the 30 years since life has taken its course and the quartet have drifted apart. Then comes the devastating news that Armaiti who lives in America is gravely ill and wants to see her old friends. In the course of the journey to reconnect, the friends are taken back to a time in their past and how different life is for them in the current time.
Umrigar’s characters and depiction of life in India is always so true to character. Being from India I’m always transported back to my life growing up. This book totally made me think of my own 4 good friends that I recently reconnected with. Thankfully it didn’t take some tragic circumstance for us to come back together.
