Afterword by Sonita Sarker

Following its successful publication in hardcover, this compassionate and visionary novel is now in paperback. The narrator, Urmi, is reeling from the recent death of her infant daughter. She finds herself inexplicably drawn into the lives of two very different women, both of whom have experienced violence, loss, and silence—and through these intervweaving tales comes a story of endurance and grace.

"The river of prose travels and you are borne along with it, effortlessly, slowly. Until you realize that you are not moving towards any particular plot-destination; you are simply traveling with a splendid writer." —Ashok Banker, Femina (India)
