November book

Join us by the fireplace at the library to discuss The Vine of Desire by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni on Wednesday November 17th at 1pm.  Copies of the book are available at the library to check out.
 The Vine of Desire continues the story of Anju and Sudha, the two young women at the center of Divakaruni's bestselling novel Sister of My Heart [We did this as September's book choice - although you needn't have read this prior to this month's book].  Far from Calcutta, the city of their childhood, and after years of living separate lives, Anju and Sudha rekindle their friendship in America.  The deep-seated love they feel for each other porvides the support each of them needs...a moving and satisfying sequel to Sister of My Heart, The Vine of Desire stands on its own as a novel of extraordinary depth and sensitivity.  Through the eyes of people caught in the clash of cultures, Divakaruni reveals the rewards and the perils of breaking free from the past and the complicated, often contradictory emotions that shape the passage to independence.     --from the book jacket
