Product description

Review

"An absolute delight...sad, joyful, and exciting all at the same time."--Bookpage (starred review)

"A playful yet profound novel [that] moves easily from heartfelt to humorous...what may seem to be a singular story about first-generation London-bred Punjabi women evolves into a story universal to us all."--USA Today

From the Back Cover

The author of the Reese Witherspoon Book Club selection Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows follows her acclaimed American debut with this witty, life-affirming family drama--an Indian This Is Where I Leave You--about three Punjabi sisters embarking on a pilgrimage to their homeland to lay their mother to rest

The British-born Shergill sisters--Rajni, Jezmeen, and Shirina--barely got along growing up, and as adults have grown even further apart. But on her deathbed, their mother voices one last wish: that her daughters will make a pilgrimage together to the Golden Temple in Amritsar to carry out her final rites. After a trip to India with her mother as a teenager, school principal Rajni vowed never to return. But she's always been a dutiful daughter, and cannot, even now, refuse her mother's request. Struggling actress Jezmeen leaps at the chance to drop out of sight--unbeknownst to her sisters, she's escaping the wrong kind of internet fame. Baby of the family Shirina's wealthy in-laws are pushing her to make a pivotal decision; time away will help her decide whether she will obey, or stand up for herself.

By turns funny, heartfelt, pointed, and wonderfully insightful, The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters illuminates the bonds of family, sisterhood, and heritage that give us wings--and roots--despite our differences.
