A Good Indian Wife

Anne Cherian


Suneel is certain he can resist his family’s attempts to wed him to ‘a good Indian wife’ to take back to America with him. Unfortunately, he is not as wily as he thinks and finds himself married to Leila. Bitter and angry, he takes her back to America, where he has a thriving practice as an anesthesiologist, and a nice girlfriend on the side. He has no room for a wife, American or Indian. Leila does everything she can to please him, but seems to have little results.

I really liked Leila and disliked Neel, as he calls himself.  He is so shallow, he doesn’t take an interest in Leila until his friend’s approval makes him sit up and take notice. Leila deserves better.
