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.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Jaya's journey towards knowing more about her own past and how it led to the family dynamics that she is experiencing in the present. The descriptions of India both past and present were intoxicating and made me want to experience them for myself. I have always been fascinated with Indian culture and Badani's book gave me a glimpse in to the fascinating history of that culture.

While I expected Jaya to be the focus of the book it was really her grandmother's story that we were told. A brave and bold story, I was enamored with her as a character and all that women in those situations had to endure.

The Storyteller's Secret is both a fascinating look at Indian culture as well as the story of one woman who dared to be more than what society said that she could be. An interesting and timely read!
