The Storyteller's Secret

The Storyteller's Secret

by Sejal Badani

Overview: 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.

Dale Israel (11/11/19): The Storyteller’s Secret by Sejal Badani is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. Jaya, a journalist is seeking comfort after experiencing 3 miscarriages and the end of her marriage and takes a trip to India to learn more about her secretive mother’s early life. The story Jaya is told is both beautiful and heartbreaking. It’s about many different types of love and devotion. This novel taught me a lot about life in India while it was a colony of England as well as the Indian culture. I couldn’t put this book down and couldn’t stop crying at its conclusion. I loved this book and highly recommend it!!!
