In the tradition of Shobhan Bantwal's successful Indian American novels, Sonali Dev's debut captures the colorful spirit and fascinating details of Indian and Bollywood culture-including a lavish wedding-while delivering an emotionally layered and accessible story. Mili Rathod has been bound by marriage since she was four years old. But when her husband shows no sign of claiming her after twenty years of waiting, Mili grabs the chance to leave India and come to America on a scholarship. Playboy filmmaker Samir "Sam" Rathod is Bollywood's favorite bad boy. He'll do anything for his big brother-even travel halfway across the globe to take care of the "wife" who just crawled out of his brother's past. Yet Mili isn't the simple village girl Sam expected. She's a whirlwind who sucks him into her roommate's elaborate elopement and soon has him drowning in her onyx eyes. And though Mili fancies herself in love with his big brother, the husband she has never met, Sam is hoping for a very different ending.

Professional reviews

"Mili is an Indian child bride when we first meet her. Her ambition to live in America is both humorous and lovable because of Priya Ayyar's talent as a narrator. With an upbeat and lively tempo, Ayyar dramatizes the unexpected ways Indian values contradict with modern American life. Her narration resounds with humor and vitality throughout this sprawling story. Her dialogue captures Indian-accented English in an authentic-sounding manner. She entertains the listener with a rapid pace, and her energy infuses a wide-ranging cast peppered with people of both genders and multiple ages. The listener maintains interest in the development of the story as it moves from one country to another. M.R. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine"
