The Henna Artist by Alka Joshi

This is the perfect paperback to take with you on a vacation in your own backyard or wherever you end up going. Taking place in post-colonial India in the 1950s, this is a love story—love of traditions, love of family, love of self, and a journey of self-worth. Escaping from an arranged and abusive marriage, 17-year-old Lakshmi pursues her dream of an independent life becoming the henna artist and confidante to wealthy women of the upper class. You will gasp at the risks she takes, cheer her on as she perseveres, and weep at her pain and struggle. I didn’t want it to end and can’t wait for the sequel, The Secret Keeper of Jaipur, available June 22nd. — Jenny
