Review: The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters is the second book I’ve read from Balli Kaur Jaswal. This contemporary novel is a heartwarming story of three estranged sisters who go on a pilgrimage to India to fulfill their mother’s dying wish. Overall, this was a great read. The book started off slow, but started picking up momentum towards the middle. I love that the author was able to combine serious issues along with implementing the culture of India and adding some humor in some areas. I also really liked how all the sisters were complex characters and how the reader learns about the strained relationships and secrets. If you loved Erotic Stories of Punjabi Widows, then you’ll definitely want to read this one!
