Nina is a thirty-year-old English lecturer in New Delhi, living with her widowed mother and struggling to make ends meet. Ananda has recently emigrated to Halifax, Canada; having spent his twenties painstakingly building his career, he searches for something to complete his new life. When Ananda's sister proposes an arranged marriage between the two, Nina is uncertain: can she really give up her home and her country to build a new life with a husband she barely knows? The consequences of change are far greater than she could have imagined. As the two of them struggle to adapt to married life, Nina's whole world is thrown into question. And as she discovers truths about her husband - both sexual and emotional - her fragile new life in Canada begins to unravel. Tender and compelling, The Immigrant is an honest exploration of a marriage, what it costs to start again - and what we can never leave behind.
The Immigrant by Manju Kapur is a poignant, intimate and compelling new novel about starting anew and leaving the familiar behind, from the author of Home, A Married Woman and Difficult Daughters.
