The Mango Season by Amulya Malladi

I finished delightful read last night. Full of genuine and rich characters this is the story of Priya, who leaves India at the age of 20 to study in America. Seven years later she returns to see her family and to tell them that she has fallen in love with an American and she is already living with him and they are engaged to be married. Priya loves her family and does not want to upset them or lose their love, but wants to follow her heart. During her visit she involves herself in family life and we there are fascinating accounts of Indian culture, including potential arranged marriages. Indeed, has Priya become "Americanised"?
