"Sisters of the Sari," by Brenda L. Baker

"Sisters of the Sari," by Brenda L. Baker
A debut novel about an American woman and an Indian woman who are about to dramatically change each other's lives-along with the lives of those around them.

While vacationing in India, Kiria Langdon, the opinionated and driven CEO of a major company, meets Santoshi, a former slave who now works as a cleaning lady and lives in a shelter for homeless women in Chennai. Appalled by the conditions in the shelter, Kiria becomes obsessed with the idea of building decent housing for poor working women in India. Santoshi reluctantly agrees to help, even though she thinks Kiria's ideas are too crazy to succeed.

Embarking on a rich journey of personal discovery, both women will learn invaluable lessons about themselves as they forge a powerful bond of sisterhood across the barriers of language and culture-a bond that makes anything possible.



This was such a fun book to read.  Made you laugh and happy and sometimes a little sad, but overall if you are a middle aged woman I think you will be able to relate to Kiria.  I have always wanted to go to India, but after reading this book, I think if would be hard work for me with the heat and mosquito's.  Plus I don't like spicy food at all.

It also teaches you never to judge a book by it's cover, or in this case; never judge a person by the clothes they wear.  It's an easy read and a book that will hook you after the first couple of chapters.

Stars out of 5 : 5 Didn't have a problem with any of the book.  Enjoyed it right the way through.  Well worth the read.
