"Profoundly moving" - Will Schwalbe, author of The End of Your Life Book Club "A gorgeous memoir about mothers, daughters, and the tenacity of the love that grows between what is said and what is left unspoken." - Mira Jacob, author of Good Talk In caring for her aging mother and her own young daughter, writer Maya Shanbhag Lang - "a new voice of the highest caliber" (Rebecca Makkai) - confronts the legacy of family myths and how the stories shared between parents and children reverberate through generations: a deeply moving memoir about immigrants and their native-born children, the complicated love between mothers and daughters, and the discovery of strength. How much can you judge another woman's choices? What if that woman is your mother? Maya Shanbhag Lang grew up idolizing her brilliant mother, an accomplished physician who immigrated to the United States from India and completed her residency, all while raising her children and keeping a traditional Indian home.
