Summary: Priya Rao left India when she was twenty to study in the U.S., and now, seven years later, she has to return to give her family the news: She’s engaged to Nick Collins, an American man. It’s going to break their hearts.
Returning to India is an overwhelming experience for Priya. Her mother and father, her grandfather and grandmother, her aunts and uncles, they all insist that it’s time they arranged her marriage to a “nice Indian boy.” As Priya’s extended family gets together to make mango pickle, she knows this is her chance to tell them the truth. Will she have to choose between the love of her family and Nick, the love of her life?
As sharp and intoxicating as fresh sugarcane juice, The Mango Season is a delightful trip into the heart and soul of both contemporary India and a woman on the edge of a profound life change.
