The Rupa Book of Indian Love Stories
by Ruskin Bond
The Rupa Book of Indian Love Stories presents immortal love legends and ballads hailing primarily from the Punjab, Kathiawar and Rajputana region of India. A mix of happy and tragic stories, these love stories have been picked from Charles A. Kincaid's Tales of Old Ind. The tales are extraordinarily mixed in character. Some emit a strong Sindhi or Gujarati flavour while others suggest a Rajput or even an Arabic influence. Whatever the origin of the tales, they form an integral part of the romantic ballad literature of India...

The Hindi-Bindi Club
by Monica Pradhan
For decades they have remained close, sharing treasured recipes, honored customs, and the challenges of women shaped by ancient ways yet living modern lives. They are the Hindi Bindi Club, a nickname given by their American daughters to the mothers who left India to start anew - daughters now grown and facing struggles of their own.

For Kiran, Preity, and Rani, adulthood bears the indelible stamp of their upbringing, from the ways they tweak their mothers' cooking to suit their Western lifestyles to the ways they reject their mothers' most fervent beliefs. Now, bearing the disappointments and successes of their chosen paths, these daughters are drawn inexorably home.

Kiran, divorced, will seek a new beginning - this time requesting the aid of an ancient tradition she once dismissed. Preity will confront an old heartbreak - and a hidden shame. And Rani will face her demons as an artist and a wife. All will question whether they have the courage of the Hindi-Bindi Club, to hold on to their dreams or to create new ones.

An elegant tapestry of East and West, peppered with food and ceremony, wisdom and sensuality, this luminous novel breathes new life into timeless themes.

by John Grisham
When Travis Boyette, a convicted felon, walks into a church in small-town Missouri, he carries with him a terrible secret. Nearly a decade earlier Nicole Yarber, a high school senior with her whole life ahead of her, vanished. For two weeks, her home town stood still as thousands of volunteers combed the alleys and fields and ditches and abandoned buildings. But the search was futile. Nicole's body was never found.Now Donte Drumm, the young black athlete arrested for Nicole's murder, sits on death row. His execution date is set for less than a week's time - and Robbie Flak, the lawyer who's been fighting to prove Donte's innocence for nine years, has spent every penny he ever had trying to get justice for his client. But now he's out of options - unless Travis Boyette's confession can put things right in time. The clock is ticking ...
