Review: Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani

Happy Sunday and welcome back! Let’s talk about Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani. This was released back in 2015, but if it missed your radar I highly suggest that you go back and do yourself the favor. It was a Goodreads choice best fiction award winner as well, so I am not the only one who loved it!

Long story short, the patriarch of an Indian American family falls into a coma and during the months that he is on life support the family has to come together, then come to terms with their history. There are secrets, buried emotions, traumas, and all the history just waiting to either destroy or rebuild these women anew.

I wouldn’t automatically grab this off the shelf if I didn’t have a sick parent at this time, but if you are a fan of this sort of fiction, a fan of beautiful language, good quotes, strong dialogue, and a flawless editor, please read this book! The language is truly flowing and I managed to read it in about three days. I also learned a lot about Indian culture.

I don’t know if this book might be upsetting to domestic abuse victims, but I do feel like it’s a subject that we shouldn’t shy away from in popular culture. It is a story of healing and coming to terms with the past. Finding ways to put away your fear and pride and loving your family.

Even with some parts being a bit melodramatic I give this a solid 5/5!

As always, please let me know if you stop in! I love feedback and talking books! This is a 100% unsolicited review with no compensation
