Mother Land

DUE IN JULY: What an unexpected delight was reading Leah Franqui's Mother Land during a pandemic. In the midst of the humid overcrowding of Mumbai, India, she creates a claustrophobic setting unlike any Western readers are likely to have encountered. While white ex-pat Rachel's attempts to gain her footing and find her purpose in her husband's native India, her mother-in-law leaves her husband, moves with Rachel and her husband, and takes over the house. This alternately hilarious and moving cultural mash-up produces one of the most unlikely friendships imaginable. Recommended by Kelly
