As university students in late 1970s Bombay, Armaiti, Laleh, Kavita, and Nishta were inseparable. Spirited and unconventional, they challenged authority and fought for a better world. But over the past thirty years, the quartet has drifted apart, the day-to-day demands of work and family tempering the revolutionary fervor they once shared.
Then comes devastating news: Armaiti, who moved to America, is gravely ill and wants to see the old friends she left behind. For Laleh, reunion is a bittersweet reminder of unfulfilled dreams and unspoken guilt. For Kavita, it is an admission of forbidden passion. For Nishta, it is the promise of freedom from a bitter, fundamentalist husband. And for Armaiti, it is an act of acceptance, of letting go on her own terms.
The World We Found is a dazzling masterwork from the remarkable Thrity Umrigar, offering an unforgettable portrait of modern India while it explores the enduring bonds of friendship and the power of love to change lives.
My new favorite author! I have always been intrigued with India, and am learning so much about the culture through Ms. Umrigar's interesting novels. Highly recommend this.Published 1 month ago by Kay's Twin
Loved this book and couldn't put it down. Disappointed with the ending as I felt there was so much more to say. Hopefully a sequel will follow. The characters were richly drawn.Published 1 month ago by Anne
I have read all of Ms Umrigars books and always look forward to the next one.
This was a very interesting idea for a story. The characters were interesting and the idea of what friendship means and how it changes over lifetimes is very intriguing. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Kindle Customer
I was enthralled with this book. I called a long-time but distant friend and told her she had to read it so we could talk about it together. Read morePublished 4 months ago by BookWorld
