This is a masterful meditation on marriage and family ties. The story begins in a Bengali village in 1879, where the narrator’s ancestor, five-year-old Tara Lata, is married to a tree after her thirteen-year-old husband-to-be dies of a snake bite on their wedding day. The novel ends 120 years later, when Tara Bhattacharjee, the youngest of three sisters of a Brahmin family returns to the same village. Mukherjee tells a larger story about Indians in India and in the U.S.A., about class, history and changing consciousness.
