Product description

From the Publisher

Meena Dave feels safer observing the world through her camera. Her adoptive parents have passed away—she has no other family and no permanent address. But Meena’s world is turned upside down yet again when she unexpectedly inherits an apartment in Boston.

Journalistic curiosity piqued, Meena decides to follow the story that landed her in a stranger’s apartment. It’s a mystery that comes with nosy aunties, a strikingly handsome neighbor, and a connection to her past that shocks her. Meena might have a chance to truly understand where she comes from. As she unravels not only the clues of her apartment but also her origins, Meena learns how to make the perfect chai, embrace friendships she never saw coming, and confront her own need to run as soon as the going gets good.

The Candid Life of Meena Dave stole my heart. Namrata Patel brings a much-needed voice into women’s fiction with culture, friendship, families lost and found, and a second chance at finding home.

—Megha Parekh, Editor
