    Description

    Beautiful, powerful new novel from the bestselling, award-winning author of Sister of My Heart and The Mistress of Spices about three generations of moth-ers and daughters who must discover their greatest source of strength in one another a masterful, brilliant tale of a family both united and torn apart by ambition and love.
    The daughter of a poor baker in rural Bengal, India, Sabitri yearns to get an education, but her family's situation means college is an impossible dream. Then an influential woman from Kolkata takes Sabitri under her wing, but her generosity soon proves dangerous after the girl makes a single, unforgiveable misstep. Years later, Sabitri's own daughter, Bela, haunted by her mother's choices, flees abroad with her political refugee lover, but the America she finds is vastly different from the country she'd imagined. As the marriage crumbles and Bela is forced to forge her own path, she unwittingly imprints her own child, Tara, with indelible lessons about freedom, heartbreak, and loyalty that will take a lifetime to unravel.
    In her latest novel, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni explores the complex relation-ships between mothers and daughters, and the different kinds of love that bind us across generations. Before We Visit the Goddess captures the gorgeous com-plexity of these multi-generational and transcontinental bonds, sweeping across the twentieth century from the countryside of Bengal, India, to the streets of Houston, Texas an extraordinary journey told through a sparkling symphony of voices.

    Brilliant, to be honest

    I rarely give a five star but this one deserved it. Sensible story-telling in a manner which captivates the reader into the plot and keeps them inside long after the story has been read. Before We Visit the Goddess is a book about three generations of women of the same family - the grandmother, the daughter and the granddaughter.

    A wonderful journey of three strong women

    There are books. There are journeys. There are books that are journeys. After a long time, I was invested in multiple characters from the same book and I felt I was a part of their journey from start to finish. I hadn’t felt that way for multiple characters in a book in a long time. Before We Visit The Goddess has strong characterisation and beautiful writing which makes you dwell into the book deeper and deeper.

    Sabitri, her daughter Bela and Bela’s daughter Tara are three women who have f...

    Breathing Tale

    Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni is that kind of author who has potential to make you fall in love with her work, since first few lines. When I started reading “Before We Visit the Goddess” I closed the book as well as eyes at once, to sense just that startled feeling. I was dying to say this “Dear Chitra Ma’am, you weave love, depth, tenderness into your intriguing stories, What a Beautiful Work, actually Gorgeous”

    Basically, the story of “Before We Visit Goddess” is all about mother daughter re...
