The stories in this collection centre around new immigrants -- spirited people prepared to leave their home and hearth to travel to distant lands in pursuit of dreams of a better life. But often times there's a reality check, and they are left to grapple with unexpected challenges: cultural shock, lack of Canadian work experience and jobs, absence of affordable daycare, and non-recognition of their educational credentials. Despite this, the stories show the determination of these immigrants to survive on alien soil.
Ramki too was overwhelmed with a sense of loss. He thought of Anu and Latha -- and he had so willfully separated them. In the cold dark night, as he stood by the tree, in his heart he understood his wife.
