A sensual and searing exploration of desire, infidelity and faith, this lush novel draws inspiration from archetypal Hindu mythology and romantic Sufi poetry, evoking unforgettable characters to explore how with a new world come new freedoms, and with them, the choices that could change everything we know about those we thought we knew, including ourselves.

Pooja Kapoor, a betrayed wife and mother, begins to question her beliefs and marriage when she discovers that her husband Rahul has fallen in love with a young Muslim man. Lonely and desperate for divine intervention, she is forced to confront painful truths about the past to make sense of the present.

Narrated from the perspective of the wife, husband and lover, The Exiles is a classic tale of love and loss set in Kenya, India and finally, Los Angeles where it culminates in an epic conclusion.
