Happy New Year!!
Knowledge is a good way to start the year on a good note!
I love reading for leisure and it comes as no surprise that one of the posts I want to introduce to Fine and Casual is a book club. For each month, I'll introduce the book at the beginning of the month, and then a review at the end of the second month where we can discuss the book. Hopefully, this will start somewhat of a book club ? Say yes!
Trail of Broken Wings
By Sejal Badani
Background - When her father falls into a coma, Indian American photographer Sonya reluctantly returns to the family she’d fled years before. Since she left home, Sonya has lived on the run, free of any ties, while her soft-spoken sister, Trisha, has created a perfect suburban life, and her ambitious sister, Marin, has built her own successful career. But as these women come together, their various methods of coping with a terrifying history can no longer hold their memories at bay.
Buried secrets rise to the surface as their father—the victim of humiliating racism and perpetrator of horrible violence—remains unconscious. As his condition worsens, the daughters and their mother wrestle with private hopes for his survival or death, as well as their own demons and buried secrets.
Told with forceful honesty, Trail of Broken Wings reveals the burden of shame and secrets, the toxicity of cruelty and aggression, and the exquisite, liberating power of speaking and owning truth.
F&C - This is my first book by an Indian-American, and domestic violence. I'm really excited for this book as the reviews have been great! But lets make our own opinions, right ?! See you by the end of February!
