I will defer to Heather Leighton's review in The Globe and Mail
I had indeed felt muddled by the prose as I followed the story of Beena and Sadhana but as I turned to reviews to confirm that others had also felt this, I read through several glowing reviews before I came upon Leighton's. she expressed my response to this book perfectly. the story of the pregnant sister vs the anorexic sister held my attention. I just wish the verbiage hadn't gotten in the way.
