From the bestselling author of Trail of Broken Wings comes an epic story of the unrelenting force of love, the power of healing, and the invincible desire to dream.

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past. Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation.

​Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.

My Review
THE STORYTELLER'S SECRET was a great book that may have been adult fiction, but I felt like it also taught me about India as well. I really enjoyed the way that the author explored the culture and appearance of India while also keeping the story the focus of the book.
I really liked Jaya and she was my favorite character, yet Ravi also made for an interesting character and served as a guide to Jaya. The heartbreak of losing a child really effect Jaya's character in a realistic manner which I thought was well written.
