Review: Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani

Trail of Broken Wings
by Sejal Badani

Publisher: Lake Union Publishing
Pages: 378
Format: ARC
Buy the Book: Amazon

When her father falls into a coma, Indian American photographer Sonya reluctantly returns to the family she’d fled years before. Since she left home, Sonya has lived on the run, free of any ties, while her soft-spoken sister, Trisha, has created a perfect suburban life, and her ambitious sister, Marin, has built her own successful career. But as these women come together, their various methods of coping with a terrifying history can no longer hold their memories at bay.

Buried secrets rise to the surface as their father—the victim of humiliating racism and perpetrator of horrible violence—remains unconscious. As his condition worsens, the daughters and their mother wrestle with private hopes for his survival or death, as well as their own demons and buried secrets.

Kritters Thoughts:  Three sisters grew up in a very hostile home.  Their mother did nothing to protect them from an abusive father and they each came out of their childhood with different reactions on how they were going to approach their own families and adulthood.  

I absolutely adored this book.  I loved how three sisters could grow up in the same home, but come out with completely different perspectives and react in completely different ways.  I was so glad to hear this book from all three sisters perspectives and their mother.  They each were able to tell their side of the story and I loved how the author weaved stories from the past with the present drama as their father is in a coma.  

If you are at all a fan of the family drama genre, then this should be the next one you pick up.  The chapters are small and the sisters are easy to get to know, so this is perfect for your first book to stick in your beach bag!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel

  1. It always amazes me how people who grow up in the same house can turn out so differently. Sounds like this is a fabulous read! Thanks for being a part of the tour.
