Everything Was Good-bye
A NovelBook - 2011
Novel centers around Meena, a young Indo-Canadian woman growing up in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, and traces her life as she struggles to assert her independence in a Punjabi community. Raised by her tradition-bound widowed mother, Meena knows the freedoms of her Canadian peers can never be hers, but unlike her sisters, she is reluctant to submit to a life that is defined by a suitable marriage. Though a narrative moving between race and culture, it is ultimately a story of love, loss and self acceptance amidst shifting cultural ideals.
