Thrity Umrigar

I just finished reading If Today Be Sweet by Thrity Umrigar, a new fiction written by an Indian woman. Fascinating story about a 60 year old Indian woman, who is living temporarily with her son, white American daughter in-law, and 7 year old grandson. She needs to decide whether to stay in the U.S. or finish her life in Bombay and the book shows the great difference in the two cultures and how she sees our way of life. You get very involved with the characters in this book.
