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.
Brenda L. Baker was born in Toronto, and has spent her working life writing computer programs in Canada, the United States, and the Netherlands. Her passion is exploring new cultures, with knitting and reading tied for second place.
