This is such a good book I have to share with you, it is called Homeless Bird, it is set in India a while back. It is about a girl named Koly. She is married to a very sick man named Hari, and, oh I probably shouldn’t spoil it for you but he dies and Koly is left a widow with her sass and sassur (mother-in-law and father-in-law) and endures long days of hard work, scoldings and bad food. The only light is her sister in law, Chandra. But when Chandra is married, Koly’s life only gets worse. Then one day, they take a trip. To where? Well, you’ll have to read the book to find out.
I thought this book was pretty good. The author does a good job of making you believe that this could be set in any time. It can be pretty serious at times, but there are little bits of happiness in the book that occur at just the right time. So, my final statement is that this book would be good for discussion, also to read on your own. It is a good book. A little romantic at times, but a nice book all the same.
