Synopsis from Goodreads: Adulting shouldn’t be this hard. Especially in your thirties. Having been pressured by her tight-knit community to get married at a young age to her first serious boyfriend, Anu Desai is now on her own again and feels like she is starting from the beginning.
But Anu doesn’t have time to start over. Telling her parents that she was separating from her husband was the hardest thing she’s ever done—and she’s still dealing with the fallout. She has her young daughter to support and when she invests all of her savings into running her own yoga studio, the feelings of irresponsibility send Anu reeling. She’ll be forced to look inside herself to learn what she truly wants.
My Review: This book serves as a great escape from the times we are living through and while I loved the idea of the book and the main character the story as a whole wasn't my favorite. I loved the diversity of the book and the main focus of finding yourself but overall the execution was a bit lacking for me. The book had too many side characters that didn't get developed enough, the time jumps from present to memories were jarring and didn't always seem necessary to the story and I was expecting a lot more about the yoga studio but in reality that seemed to be more of a side plot. Overall I would give the author another shot.
