Trail of Broken Wings by Sejal Badani

Trail of Broken Wings _300dpi



From Goodreads:
When her father falls into a coma, Indian American photographer Sonya reluctantly returns to the family she’d fled years before. Since she left home, Sonya has lived on the run, free of any ties, while her soft-spoken sister, Trisha, has created a perfect suburban life, and her ambitious sister, Marin, has built her own successful career. But as these women come together, their various methods of coping with a terrifying history can no longer hold their memories at bay.
Buried secrets rise to the surface as their father—the victim of humiliating racism and perpetrator of horrible violence—remains unconscious. As his condition worsens, the daughters and their mother wrestle with private hopes for his survival or death, as well as their own demons and buried secrets.
Told with forceful honesty, Trail of Broken Wings reveals the burden of shame and secrets, the toxicity of cruelty and aggression, and the exquisite, liberating power of speaking and owning truth.

My Review:
Four star
It's been a while since I read such a satisfying book.  I absolutely loved the mystery and the secrets that the family had. The writing was engaging and the characters well well developed. The pacing of the story was also well done.  Marin was a wonderful heroine. She was fragile and strong at the same time.
