Anamika Fields is the daughter of an Englishman and an Indian woman. Her mother, Sadhana Tripathi, left behind a career as a Hindustani classical vocalist of great promise to marry her father and move to the UK. Her father died when Anamika was ten, leaving Sadhana, who never wanted to be a parent, who never wanted to live in England, to bring up her only daughter.
Twenty-five years later, Sadhana is suffering from the onset of dementia, a situation exacerbated by Sadhana’s reluctance to leave the house she has worked so hard for, Ana’s own precarious financial and professional circumstances, and the cost of specialised care.
Mother and daughter, strangers for over a decade, find themselves thrown together once again after all this time. This has always been a difficult, damaging relationship. Some of it was a by-product of their circumstance. And some of it was absolutely deliberate.
Anamika is forced to become several things, all at once: she is daughter and mother, care-giver and secretary and detective, shield and scalpel. Around her, in the neighbourhood she escaped, Anamika begins to discover a woman she never knew at home, alive in memory, in anecdote, in music she doesn’t understand.
