The all-too-imperfect lives of Divakaruni's heroines, like precious gems, are unrecognized treasures, worthy of being praised, protected and held dear."-- San Jose Mercury News "Both universal and unique."-- Kirkus Reviews "Beautifully told stories of transformed lives . . . Both liberated and trapped by cultural changes on both sides of the ocean, these women struggle fiercely to carve out an identity of their own." --San Francisco Chronicle "These are ravishingly beautiful stories, some profoundly sad, others full of revelation, all unforgettable." --Booklist
