About The Book

"A beautiful, powerful new novel from the bestselling, award-winning author ofSister of My Heart and The Mistress of Spices about three generations ofmothers and daughters who must discover their greatest source of strength inone another-a masterful, brilliant tale of a family both united and torn apartby ambition and love.

The daughter of a poor baker in rural Bengal, India, Sabitri yearns to get aneducation, but her family's situation means college is an impossible dream.Then an influential woman from Kolkata takes Sabitri under her wing, but hergenerosity soon proves dangerous after the girl makes a single, unforgiveablemisstep. Years later, Sabitri's own daughter, Bela, haunted by her mother'schoices, flees abroad with her political refugee lover-but the America shefinds is vastly different from the country she'd imagined. As the marriagecrumbles and Bela is forced to forge her own path, she unwittingly imprintsher own child, Tara, with indelible lessons about freedom, heartbreak, andloyalty that will take a lifetime to unravel.

In her latest novel, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni explores the complexrelationships between mothers and daughters, and the different kinds of lovethat bind us across generations. Before We Visit the Goddess captures thegorgeous complexity of these multi-generational and transcontinental bonds,sweeping across the twentieth century from the countryside of Bengal, India,to the streets of Houston, Texas-an extraordinary journey told through asparkling symphony of voices."
