Book Description
"In Desirable Daughters, Mukherjee has written a novel that is both the portrait of a traditional Brahmin family on the brink of its dissolution, and a contemporary American story of a woman who has outwardly broken with tradition, but still remains tied to her native country. In so doing, Mukherjee has also given us three extraordinary women - sisters - the "desirable daughters" of the title." Tara, the story`s narrator, marries the perfect Indian man her parents select, then divorces him to carve out a life in San Francisco that in many ways is dazzlingly Californian. She and her sisters, though separated geographically and by radically different lifestyles, remain very close. When danger befalls Tara it is to her sisters and to her ex-husband that she turns for comfort and renewal, and for help in resolving the mystery that threatens to destroy her and all her family.
