    Life is hard – Samantha had discovered – but everyone can achieve the ‘American dream’ if they try hard enough. And, the young Indian woman discovers a lot more in the process.



    In “All those Tears We can’t see” by Gita Audhya,the writer establishes an excellent story filled with a plethora of questions (and answers) revolving around spirituality, opportunity, immigration, tension and poverty. Gita also throws in a mixture of class battles, and domestic issues circling around Americans and those from Samantha’s past in India.



    Samantha is our main character – and this story, “All those Tears We can’t See,” is a journal of sorts of Samantha’s life.



    First, we look at a younger Samantha who leaves it all to head get a better life in America … and then, we see her going back to her homeland of India, to find her daughter who she has a turbulent relationship with as her daughter married a man who is not of their culture.



    Her daughter, Monica, goes through turmoil, and Samantha is broken-hearted and anger.



    It is through this tragic scenario – which you will have to read about it – that Samantha (or Shimonti) discovers the necessity and power of change.



    Gita Audhya wraps what appears to be some deep doses of reality into a gumbo of intrigue, acceptance, mystery, growth, and yes fiction. She holds nothing back in her descriptions and use of the language.



    And that is the kind of writer we need – especially these days. Entertain us, yes, but dear writer, if you can educate us or make us feel “woke,” then do it.



    Gita Audhya does it.



    From Chapter One, Gita Audhya had her main character go through a moment or two of angst – especially over the babysitting of her child.



    And here is where we see her becoming more aware of the culture difference she was going through.



    “Samantha looked at Patty and sighed, showing her frustration. it was in these moments that she felt so helpless in this country. Everything was so different here, the mindset in particular. It would be no less than a scandal in Kolkata (Calcutta) – a young girl bringing a guy into the house! But here it was a way of life!”



    The paragraph above revolves around culture difference – and how bringing a many in to the house and not being married would create some drama.



    And that is how the book goes – keep us on the edge of our seats – to see what drama is going to unveil next. Check the book out today.

    Reviews

    Audhya’s tearjerker second novel (after In Pursuit of Love, Spirituality, and Happiness) explores the relationship between a contemporary Bengali immigrant and her American-born daughter. Shimonti Bose, raised in a middle-class Bengali family in India, got married and started life over in America in pursuit of the American dream. But Shimonti—now going by Samantha—feels torn between cultures, a divide that only deepens when she raises a daughter, Monica, who feels purely American and eventually starts dating Brandon, a white American man. Then Monica shocks and surprises her mother by accepting a journalist assignment in India. As she and Samantha travel separately through India, Monica begins to understand where her mother came from, while Samantha experiences being a stranger in a changed India.

    Monica and Samantha both undergo transformations throughout the novel, illuminating the familial challenges of bridging cultures. Audhya has a gift for description and insight. However, her long asides grow repetitive after a time, and some of the dialogue sounds stilted. Her portrayals of Indian cities are rich and vivid, but readers may be jarred by equally vivid scenes of violence. Some Bengali cultural elements are described in detail for outsiders, but others go unexplained, leaving the book’s intended audience unclear. Indian and American racial politics play significant, sometimes contrasting roles in Samantha’s life. While she is conscious of being treated as an outsider in the U.S., she shrugs off anti-Black racism among Indians. She agonizes over Monica getting engaged to Brandon, threatening to bar Monica from her house and concluding, “I can never think of him as my own son.” Monica and Brandon’s romance is less than compelling; the key relationship is between Samantha and Monica, and the conclusion of their story will have readers weeping.

    Audhya connects the past and the present through highlighting both cultural comfort and dissonance in relatable terms. The strongest part of the story is the complexity of the relationship between a mother and daughter who love each other very deeply but struggle to understand each other. This endearing, sometimes tragic story will resonate with anyone who has ever had a difficult relationship with family, and particularly with members of immigrant families who are working to unite generations.

    Takeaway: This powerful and insightful drama will appeal to members of immigrant families that are grappling with cultural divides across generations.

    Great for fans of Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club, Jhumpa Lahiri’s The Namesake.

    All Those Tears We Can't See by Gita Audhya is the story of a first generation Indian-American girl and how she figures out her life and finds out that she has love for both sides of her cultures. We follow Monica, who believes that she is American at heart, even though both her parents are Indian. Although she loves both her parents and respects their beliefs and their customs wholeheartedly, there is a cultural gap that seems to never fill.

    However, when Monica falls in love with Brandon, a Christian and American, her mother disapproves of the relationship. Samantha believes that this will put an end to Bengali traditions in the life of her future generations. Her past is holding her back from embracing the future with her daughter. To understand her mother better, Monica takes a job opportunity to go to India, and she tries to understand her mother’s perspective. When she reaches India, she falls in love with the country and its traditions and religion. However, tragedy befalls her and her whole family when she falls prey to rapists. What will happen now? Can she go back to America and share her new found love with her mother and Brandon? Will she even get the chance?

    Coming from the point of view of a girl raised in America with parents from a different country, you cannot help but feel for Monica, especially when she is trying so hard to empathize with her parents and trying to understand their point of view. The relationship between mother and daughter was difficult, but it was real. The novel sometimes becomes devastatingly realistic and becomes an emotional roller coaster that you don’t want to get off. Gita Audhya did an amazing job at bringing these characters to life and she makes them real, breathing people that come right out of the pages and into the minds of readers.
