Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)

Isabelle, a bereaved mother and wife, returns to her childhood home in India with a new vision for this banana plantation’s look: out with the scared grounds and barking dogs, in with tennis courts and a fancy new washing machine!  But through the influence of immortal gurus, meddling spirits and a tribe of crying monkeys, Isabelle is forced to realize that no spin cycles can wash away the dirty laundry that is her.
