    A New York Times best seller

    A Reese Witherspoon x Hello Sunshine Book Club Pick

    "Captivated me from the first chapter to the final page." (Reese Witherspoon)

    Vivid and compelling in its portrait of one woman’s struggle for fulfillment in a society pivoting between the traditional and the modern, The Henna Artist opens a door into a world that is at once lush and fascinating, stark and cruel.

    Escaping from an abusive marriage, 17-year-old Lakshmi makes her way alone to the vibrant 1950s pink city of Jaipur. There she becomes the most highly requested henna artist - and confidante - to the wealthy women of the upper class. But trusted with the secrets of the wealthy, she can never reveal her own....

    Known for her original designs and sage advice, Lakshmi must tread carefully to avoid the jealous gossips who could ruin her reputation and her livelihood. As she pursues her dream of an independent life, she is startled one day when she is confronted by her husband, who has tracked her down these many years later with a high-spirited young girl in tow - a sister Lakshmi never knew she had. Suddenly the caution that she has carefully cultivated as protection is threatened. Still she perseveres, applying her talents and lifting up those that surround her as she does.

    “Eloquent and moving…Joshi masterfully balances a yearning for self-discovery with the need for familial love.” (Publishers Weekly)

    Look for The Secret Keeper of Jaipur from New York Times best-selling author Alka Joshi!

    inspiring and unique

    Apart from being written and read amazingly this book has so many deep messages, especially the one that:
    sometimes our wishes are not the best for us. My mom always told me "be careful what you wish for, though it might come true". Also on the day two of reading I've already painted my own skin with henna ... beautiful read. Just dive in. I was a little concerned about the story, being an empathic person I take it too personally EVERYTHING and did not want to read about deep misery, pain, abuse etc. NOTHING disturbing to the story. It is beautiful. Simple as that. Deep, interesting, inspiring, heart warming. Of course the protagonist go through an emotional, physical and mental journey, which is not easy, but it is described very eloquent and mildly.
