"An exciting new novel from the best-selling author of The Scent of Pepper
Shari's life has always been controlled by others—a domineering mother, a too-perfect sister and a kind but passive father have seen to it that her choices are shaped
more by the demands of social propriety than by her own will. Inevitably, she finds herself agreeing to marry the man of their choice. But tormented by the ghosts of the past and increasingly uncertain about her decision to marry, she flees to her brother's house in Vrindaban a few weeks before the wedding—much to the shock and dismay of her mother.
Even as she gets drawn into the busy and entirely unpredictable lives of her brother and sister-in-law, both doctors, Shari grapples with her memories: her relationship
with Naren, her blind friend, and the traumatic discovery of the truth about Uncle and Aunt Paru whom she had always considered her surrogate parents. And as she makes peace with her past, she finds in herself the strength to confront her own future.
Richly textured and boldly perceptive, Mango-coloured Fish is the heartwarming story of a young woman's attempt to strike out on her own."
