About the Book : Perched on the Periphery paints an intimate portrait of a Hindu widow’s journey to find her identity, search for meaning within a new culture, and contemplate loving again.

Nandita is a middle-aged Hindu widow who has always derived her identity from her roles as mother and grandmother. So, when her son asks her to move from India to Illinois to help settle his young family in a new country, she willingly leaves everything behind.

While Nandita attempts to redefine herself and find meaning in a new culture devoid of familiar traditions, she meets Bill Brady, a grieving widower. As Bill and Nandita form a friendship, she is left to decide whether she wants him as a friend—or something more.
