When Dreams Travel
by Githa Hariharan Description

In Indu's ancestral home, that she escaped from so many years ago, nothing seems to have altered. Yet all is different. For the usually determined Indu, it is a time of questioning, of rethinking her life, her journalistic career, her marriage and her illusion of hard-won independence. Is she her own self, even when she is working? Or is it her tragedy never to be free, never to be complete?

The novel focuses on her interactions with the varied personalities in her large family and the manner in which this helps to resolve their future and her own personal crisis.
