Product description

From the Publisher

Have you ever felt yourself torn between two places? This feeling of being pulled between homes, but not fully fitting in either, is at the heart of Mansi Shah’s debut novel.

In The Taste of Ginger, Preeti Desai is an Indian American lawyer living in Los Angeles who has spent most of her life trying to assimilate to American culture and working her way up the corporate ladder. But after Preeti falls in love with a white man, she finds herself on the outside of even her own family. When her brother and sister-in-law are in an accident while in India for a cousin’s wedding, Preeti rushes back to Ahmedabad, the city of her birth, for the first time as an adult. Surrounded by the sights, smells, and sounds of a place and culture that are at once both familiar and unknown, Preeti finds herself questioning the life and values she left behind in LA. She also begins to understand more about her parents’ choice to move to America, the hardships they’ve faced since, and everything they left behind in India, all while gaining a new appreciation for a land she’s just now getting to really know.

A poignant and timely story about immigration, cultural differences, and the desire to belong, The Taste of Ginger is one novel that’s not to be missed. With every page of this heartfelt and ultimately uplifting story about family, friendship, and personal discovery, I found myself cheering for Preeti as she searches for what she wants out of life and where she truly belongs.

—Alicia Clancy, Editor
