Bhima has been a domestic servant in an upper-middle-class Bombay household for more than twenty years, washing dishes she is not allowed to eat from, cleaning furniture she is not allowed to sit on. But Bhima has also forged a special bond with her mistress, Sera, their relationship strengthened by the family tragedies that they must, as women, bear with strength and dignity. Now Bhimae(tm)s headstrong granddaughter, who holds the fragile promise of moving beyond the slum, is pregnant and unwed. Turning to Serabai for help, Bhima must test the strength of the bond that took a lifetime to build but that may be severed in a devastating instant.
The Space Between Us transports readers into the lives of two contemporary Bombay families struggling to shoulder the weight of class, custom and dangerous loyalties.
