From the acclaimed author of Imaginary Men comes an enchanting new novel about a young woman with an uncanny ability to see deep into every heart but her own Lakshmi Sen was born with a magical ability to perceive the secret longings in others Putting aside her own dreams to help run her widowed mother's struggling Seattle sari shop Mystic Elegance Lakshmi knows exactly how to bring happiness to custo Rats This was a book I really really wanted to like As a friend remarked the bones of the book were really good it just didn t have the fleshLakshmi s beauty was part of the theme of invisible lives but it was remarked upon on almost every other page which got old uickly Plus it took away from exploring the invisible lives of the other characters there was also a little about Lakshmi s conflict between the man she wanted and the man her parents and her culture expected her to have The resolution of her conflict is intertwined with the idea of invisible lives but the resolution is presented rather than exploredAlso there was a fair amount of as you know Bob in Bengali culture I wish that either it had been left out of the story entirely and I was given credit as the reader for figuring it out myself or explored in how the characters acted and felt rather than what they said to one anotherI enjoyed the bits about the sari shop the meaning of saris and how the women interact with them That was lovely lovely lovely I found myself browsing saris online because I ve always loved the look of them and the book made the actuality of them interesting and beautifulFrom what I read people liked Imaginary Men better and maybe I ll try that book of Banerjee s
