The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters
BY BALLI KAUR JASWAL
British-born Punjabi sisters Rajni, Jezmeen and Shirina have never been close so when their dying mother instructs them to go on a pilgrimage across India to carry out her final rites, the sisters are forced together as they haven’t been for years.
Rajni is an archetypal eldest child bossy, knows best, always right but her perfect son dropped a devastating bombshell before she left and now she’s floundering.
Middle sister Jezmeen was always a loudmouth, translating her need for attention into life as a struggling actress. But her career is on the skids after an incident went viral and now she’s desperate to find her voice again.
Shirina has always been the perfect sister, who confounded expectations by having the most traditional arranged marriage of them all and moving to the other side of the world. But her perfect marriage isn’t what it seems and time is running out to make the right choice.
Each sister has her own reasons for agreeing to this ludicrous trip, and as the miles rack up, the secrets of the past and present are sure to spill out.
