Just finished Under the Lemon Trees by Bhira Backhaus

This is a story about a traditional Indian family living in California, and the conflicts that the daughters face as they try to follow their family traditions, includng arranged marriages, while they desire to live more American lifestyles. I tend to gravitate to this type of story as the differences in the cultures fascinate me. I enjoyed the characters in this story, but at times it was a slow read for me. Although it doesn't stand out as one of my favorites in the genre, I still enjoyed it. My rating: 3.5/5
