The Girl in the Garden
Our own Book of the Month pick for your collection of female-focused literature, The Girl in the Garden captures the story of Rakhee Singh, a Midwestern teenager who travels to her mother’s ancestral Indian home. While exploring the village and estate, which are almost frozen in time, she meets her inquisitive cousins for the very first time, learning from them why her mother fled the site after her childhood. As the summer continues, Rakhee discovers more details about the domestic life, spiritual beliefs, and patriarchal culture inherent in the area. It’s not until she discovers her mother and aunt crossing the building’s border walls that she truly discovers the secret hidden in lush foliage that’s storied to shroud a Hindu goddess. Family tensions, romantic fidelity, and dynamically descriptive prose will draw you in to this dream-inspired tale by Kamala Nair.
