My favorite in 2009

The Weight of Heaven by Thrity Umrigar was without a doubt my favorite book for the year.  The story is about  a grief stricken Michigan couple that relocate to India for a new beginning when the husband accepts a business assignment. Umrigar writes beautifully about cross-cultural relationships and provides an amazing twist to the end.  Readers who loved The Space Between Us would really enjoy this book.  I'm looking forward to what she'll write next.

This sounds like a good book. I have not read the other one (The Space Between Us) either.
