Nina is a thirty year old English lecturer, struggling to make ends meet for herself and her widowed mother. She sees herself as increasingly off the shelf—after all what prospects would an impoverished girl have without a father to marry her off? Then, unexpectedly, a proposal arrives. Ananda is a dentist in Halifax, Canada. He has spent his twenties painstakingly building his career, and has had no time to get married. The two start to write to each other, then talk on the phone, and finally Ananda arrives in New Delhi to propose. At first uncertain, Nina eventually agrees. When the two marry, she leaves her home and her country to build a new life with her husband. But there is always more to marriage than courtship. And as Nina discovers truths about her husband - both sexual and emotional - her fragile new life in Canada begins to unravel. Printed Pages: 334.
