Summary
"Meera, always gracious Meera, is happily submerged in the role of corporate wife and cookbook writer. Then, one day, her husband fails to come home. Overnight, Meera, disoriented, emotionally fragile Meera, becomes responsible not just for her two children, but also her mother, grandmother and the running of Lilac House, their rambling old family home in Bangalore. A few streets away, Professor J.A. Krishnamurthy or Jak, cyclone studies expert, survivor of one marriage and several other encounters, has recently returned from Florida, to care for his nineteen-year-old daughter, the victim of a tragic accident. What happened on her holiday in a small Indian beachside village? The police will not help, Smriti's friends have vanished, and a wall of silence and fear surrounds the incident. But Jak cannot rest until he gets to the truth. THE LILAC HOUSE tells how Meera and of Jak's paths cross and how they are uniquely able to help each other uncover the truth about the secrets of their pasts and the promise of the future. THE LILAC HOUSE is a moving story of redemption, forgiveness and second chances"--
