Sadia Shepard's book tells the compelling story of her personal journey to find a grandmother's somewhat hidden history.
Full of fascinating exposure to Jewish Indians with unique roots and customs who lived harmoniously among Muslims and Hindus for generations.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys stories of personal growth, travel, the intersection of cultures, and questions of faith.
