Overview: One Hundred Shades Of White

There's East. There's West. And then there's Maya Maya, her mother Nalini, and her brother Satchin have left a carefree life in India to come to England. But when Maya's father disappears, leaving only deceit and debt behind, they are left to fend for themselves in a strange, damp land. Maya, though, doesn't know of her father's betrayal. Nalini, determined to preserve her children's pride, tells them that their father died in an accident and, as their struggle to make a life begins, whole realities are built on this lie. While Nalini cooks exotic pickles which enchant all who eat them, Maya begins to adapt to her new home the unfamiliar food, the language, the music and then to explore and make bold plans, plans that her mother does not understand. But even a white lie cannot remain hidden forever and when the truth resurfaces, it changes everything

    Just how as adults we realize that the world is not always black and white, Preethi Nair weaves a beautiful story to portray that there are several shades of ‘white’ and innumerable aspects in life contributing to joy and sadness. Forced by circumstances in life, Nalini uproots herself and her two children (Maya and Sachin) to move to London leaving behind her mother in hometown Kerala. The trials and tribulations and the success and failures in these lives of Nalini and Maya and how they overcome all odds are well described. And if you are a foodie, you will enjoy this book even more!
