Before We Visit the Goddess – Chitra Banerjee Divakurni

This is an easy read as most of Chitra’s novels are. In following the lives of three generations of Bengali women one realises quite clearly just how one mistake can alter the course of one’s life…quite often for the worse..

True to Divakaruni style there are descriptions of food that make one want to rush out to the nearest Bengali Sweets and soothe that mithai ki craving! 😃
There were no ‘Aha!’ moments, no real insights but just a soft comfortable feeling of having a good book close at hand especially when the monsoons made going out of the house an impossibility. 😊
