Lifelines is an enthralling collection of stories that traces the journeys of individuals as they re-shape their destinies in a world where the old ways are being challenged as never before, even in the traditionalist heartlands of South Asia. A successful architect suddenly finds herself the reluctant guardian of two children. A new York cabbie ponders his previous incarnation as an investment banker. A mother-in-law and daughter-in-law maintain an uneasy truce based on a delusion. A postgraduate student encounters a mystery from his past in a foreign land. A young woman discovers an unlikely cure for self-consciousness. Clear-eyed children observe adult hypocrisies. And romance is found in all the wrong places. Lifelines portrays the trials and triumphs of men, women and children who face unexpected challenges, and discover that the decisions they make can have unimaginable consequences.
