The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters

indexThe second novel written by Balli Kaur Jaswal addresses the issues of family ties and sibling rivalry. Sita Shergill has an advanced cancer that leaves her little time to try and address the issues between her three daughters: Rajni, Jezmeen and Shirina. Sita’s last request is for them to travel to India together on a pilgrimage, something she had always wanted to do, but no longer can. The sisters discover that the “perfect” lives they thought each other had were anything but perfect, as they travel through India following the itinerary that Sita had left for them. It’s a wonderful story of family ties, and the lessons learned when siblings learn to listen to each other, as well as a stunning glimpse into another culture and its sometimes shocking tenets.
