Narrator Soneela Nankani projects turmoil and joy in this entertaining audiobook about a woman learning to see the "om" in her life. Thirty-something Anu Desai, a divorced mother in a traditional Indian family, is feeling overwhelmed. The opportunity to buy a yoga studio puts Anu in a position to ground herself and grow up. Nankani's Indian accents for the parents of both Anu and her ex-husband, Neil, are spot-on, with lilts and pauses expertly capturing the nuances of the complicated relationship between Anu and her in-laws. The tenderness and humor in Anu's relationships with her flawed but loyal friends also come through. Nankani's authentic storytelling will leave listeners with a smile of satisfaction.
