The Story HourThe Story Hour by Thrity Umrigar
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Maggie is a psychologist working in a hospital and developing her own private practice in her home office. Lakshmi is a married Indian woman whose attempted suicide has brought the two together.

Maggie's professional guard is let down in her treatment of Lakshmi and offers to treat her free of charge. Week by week Lakshmi tells stories of her homeland and her life in American with her domineering husband.

With the help of Maggie and her husband Lakshmi's life begins to open gradually like a flower beginning to bloom. But there are secrets that are so disturbing that lives will be ruined.

An excellent read. Thrity Umrigar is at the top of my favourite authors list.
