The Storyteller's Secret: A Novel

An Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestseller.

From the bestselling author of Trail of Broken Wings comes an epic story of the unrelenting force of love, the power of healing, and the invincible desire to dream.

Nothing prepares Jaya, a New York journalist, for the heartbreak of her third miscarriage and the slow unraveling of her marriage in its wake. Desperate to assuage her deep anguish, she decides to go to India to uncover answers to her family’s past.

Intoxicated by the sights, smells, and sounds she experiences, Jaya becomes an eager student of the culture. But it is Ravi—her grandmother’s former servant and trusted confidant—who reveals the resilience, struggles, secret love, and tragic fall of Jaya’s pioneering grandmother during the British occupation. Through her courageous grandmother’s arrestingly romantic and heart-wrenching story, Jaya discovers the legacy bequeathed to her and a strength that, until now, she never knew was possible.

Trail of Broken Wings

When her father falls into a coma, Indian American photographer Sonya reluctantly returns to the family she’d fled years before. Since she left home, Sonya has lived on the run, free of any ties, while her soft-spoken sister, Trisha, has created a perfect suburban life, and her ambitious sister, Marin, has built her own successful career. But as these women come together, their various methods of coping with a terrifying history can no longer hold their memories at bay.

Buried secrets rise to the surface as their father—the victim of humiliating racism and perpetrator of horrible violence—remains unconscious. As his condition worsens, the daughters and their mother wrestle with private hopes for his survival or death, as well as their own demons and buried secrets.

Told with forceful honesty, Trail of Broken Wings reveals the burden of shame and secrets, the toxicity of cruelty and aggression, and the exquisite, liberating power of speaking and owning truth.

Der Weg heim (German Edition)

Als ihr Vater ins Koma fällt, kehrt Sonya widerstrebend in das Haus ihrer Kindheit zurück. Hier trifft sie nach Jahren in der Fremde auf ihre Mutter und ihre beiden Schwestern Marin und Trisha – als Töchter indischer Einwanderer scheint für sie der amerikanische Traum wahr geworden zu sein.

Doch der Schein trügt. Ihr Wiedersehen und die Krankheit ihres Vaters zwingen sie dazu, die Vergangenheit aufzuarbeiten – die Geschichte eines dominanten Mannes, der als Einwanderer in einem fremden Land unter alltäglicher Diskriminierung litt.

Mit erschütternder Ehrlichkeit erzählt die Autorin in »Der Weg heim« eine berührende Geschichte des Leids sowie der befreienden Macht der Worte und der Wahrheit.

La strada di casa (Italian Edition)
Quando suo padre entra in coma, Sonya, giovane fotografa di origini indiane, torna con riluttanza dalla famiglia che aveva abbandonato anni prima. Nel frattempo Sonya ha vissuto libera da ogni legame, mentre la sorella maggiore, Marin, si è costruita con tenacia e determinazione la brillante carriera che ha caparbiamente voluto; Trisha, la preferita delle tre figlie, conduce un’esistenza perfetta, quella cui si è sempre sentita destinata. Ma quando le tre donne si riavvicinano, la corazza sotto cui hanno rinchiuso il loro terribile passato cede alla marea della memoria.
Mentre l’uomo si aggrava, riemerge una storia famigliare di razzismo subìto e violenze domestiche, e l’intera famiglia si ritrova a combattere con i demoni e i segreti del proprio passato, incerta se sperare la morte o la sopravvivenza del padre.
Alla fine, solo percorrendo insieme il sentiero impervio e liberatorio della verità, le tre donne giungeranno alla scelta più alta, quella fra accettazione e oblio.


Dopo un servizio per il New York Times passai un po’ di tempo nei loro archivi, spulciando vecchie fotografie. Quelle immagini offrivano l’unica finestra sulla vita di un’altra generazione. Guardavo quei volti, le loro espressioni rivelavano ben poco delle loro lotte, delle speranze, delle delusioni. Fissavano l’obiettivo e lasciavano trapelare solo ciò che volevano mostrare.
Guardando la mia famiglia mi domando se non facciamo forse così anche noi. Ognuno lascia vedere solo quello che vuole. Siamo gelide come statue dentro una palla di vetro. Qualunque cosa accada, teniamo duro, anche quando dentro siamo a pezzi. Ma quand’è che abbiamo deciso di tenerci nascosti i nostri segreti? Quando si è spezzata irrimediabilmente la catena che ci teneva unite?
