Fiction • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

In a masterful performance, Deepti Gupta delivers this story of twin sisters who are torn apart by family mores in 1950s Bombay. She brings the ever-rising stakes for Jaya and Kamlesh to the listener in living color. Her nuanced performance captures each character, particularly determined and passionate Jaya. Gupta's subtle shifts in tone and accent also enhance the authenticity of the narrative. Her ability to convey emotional depth and cultural complexities draws listeners into the vivid world of postcolonial India. Listeners will feel intimately connected to the pain Kamlesh faces as she is pulled between pleasing her father and following her sister. Further, Jaya's struggles for independence from their conservative father are likely to garner their support. Overall, Gupta's eloquent delivery creates an unforgettable audio experience.
