From the Editor

From the opening passages of The Storyteller’s Secret I was transfixed by author Sejal Badani’s ability to infuse beauty into tragedy. A woman, undone by a third miscarriage and the fracture of her marriage, embarks on a journey of familial self-discovery.

Still grieving her loss, Jaya travels alone to India to find answers—about her history, healing, and the dream of motherhood. Along the way she meets Ravi, her grandmother’s confidant, who reveals just how resilient and amazing Amisha was. Jaya finds an ancient picture of Amisha in a shoebox, and it seems to show her straining to see something in the distance. “Your grandmother believed photographs hid the truth about a person, offering only an illusion instead,” Ravi tells her. “I am sure she would have thought differently if she had known a picture was all that would be left to remember her by.”

As the novel unfolded with Jaya’s present-day pursuit of the truth captured by the photograph, and as she discovered more about Amisha’s life in British-occupied India in the 1930s, I found myself swept away by Jaya’s emotional transformation. Watching Jaya dig up family secrets that set her life on a new course, I realized we’ve all been at the crossroads, wondering which way to turn. As Jaya fleshes out her grandmother’s life, the next steps on her path are lit with a thousand suns. We should all be so lucky as to uncover a legacy of strength, right when we need it.

- Danielle Marshall, Editor


Product description

Product Description

An Amazon Charts, USA Today, and Washington Post bestseller.

From the bestselling author of Trail of Broken Wings comes an epic story of the unrelenting force of love, the power of healing, and the invincible desire to dream.

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past.

Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.
