Review: The Mango Season



The Mango Season by Amulya Malladi

I was drawn to this book first by the beautiful cover, and then by the positive reviews the author received.

Priya is from a traditional Indian family, but has lived in the States for several years. She is now returning to visit her family with a terrible secret - she is engaged to an American, and her family is not going to be happy about it. What follows are vivid descriptions of India, the food, the culture, and the clash between Priya and her family.

If you are a fan of Indian film, literature or culture, I think you will enjoy this lovely novel.
