Summary
"The British-born Shergill sisters--Rajni, Jezmeen, and Shirina--barely got along growing up, and as adults have grown even further apart. But on her deathbed, their mother voices one last wish: that her daughters will make a pilgrimage to India to carry out her final rites. After a trip to India as a teenager, Rajni vowed never to return, but as a dutiful daughter she cannot refuse her mother's request. Struggling actress Jezmeen leaps at the chance to go, while Shirina's wealthy-in-laws are pushing her to make a pivotal decision. By turns funny, heartfelt, and wonderfully insightful, The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters illuminates the bonds of family, sisterhood, and heritage"--Back cover
Summary
