Priya Ayyar brings emotional depth to this novel about a young Indian American woman's coming of age and unexpected entry into motherhood. She captures Vega--a quiet, shy college student--at a time of raw vulnerability by gently voicing her hopes, fears, triumphs, and heartaches. In an understated style, Ayyar softly explores Vega's exploration of what transforms a house, a city, or even a country into a home. Ayyar invites listeners to inhabit the life of this young first-generation American, to walk in her shoes and feel her struggles and joys. Vega grapples with her companionable but passionless marriage, establishes her own goals, and embraces her surprise pregnancy. Ayyar's thoughtful performance draws listeners in as empathetic witnesses. M.R. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
