The set of of the story centers around Nomi who was taken into an evil Ashram, orphaned and abused. The author adds three senior women on a last trip together, and Suraj who accompanies Nomi later in life as she retraces the past. Somehow I thought the characters were to find a commonality and that the end would bring it all together. It didn't. I kept thinking I missed something. Disappointing.

I totally agree with the previous review. At the end, if you can call it that, I thought I was missing something. Some very good parts but this book left me unsatisfied.
