This is the first title that Mindy Kaling is publishing. Those who enjoy Ms. Kaling and those who like Sonali Dev’s novels will be happy to give this title a look.
I enjoyed Ms. Dev’s novels that were retellings of Jane Austen stories. I also liked this book but, honestly, just a tiny bit less. It tells the story of three related women who represent three generations. The oldest, Bindu, has received an inheritance that raises some issues from her past. She uses her newfound money to move into a retirement community. How will she fare there when not everyone, at least initially, wants to accept her. Aly, next generation wise, is fighting for her place as a TV reporter. She has been blocked for years. She is Bindu’s daughter in law. Youngest, Cully, Aly’s daughter, has developed an app to help those with anxiety. Now a company wants to charge for this app that Cully believes should be given to people at no cost.
So, here are three women, all of whom are related, all of whom are at turning points, and all of whom may need to stand up for themselves. Find out how they fare in this novel.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Mindy’s Book Studio for this title. All opinions are my own.
