A Change of Heart

About the Book

Dr. Nikhil ‘Nic’ Joshi had it all—marriage, career, purpose. Until, while working for Doctors Without Borders in a Mumbai slum, his wife, Jen, discovered a black market organ transplant ring. Before she could expose the truth, Jen was killed.

Two years after the tragedy, Nic is a cruise ship doctor who spends his days treating seasickness
and sunburn and his nights in a boozy haze. On one of those blurry evenings on deck, Nic meets a woman who makes a startling claim: she received Jen’s heart in
a transplant and has a message for him. Nic wants to discount Jess Koirala’s story as absurd, but there’s something about her reckless desperation that resonates despite his doubts.

Jess has spent years working her way out of a nightmarish life in Calcutta and into a respectable
Bollywood dance troupe. Now she faces losing the one thing that matters—her young son, Joy.  She needs to uncover the secrets Jen risked everything for; but the unforeseen bond that results between her and Nic is both a lifeline and a perilous complication.

Delving beyond the surface of modern Indian-American life, acclaimed author Sonali Dev’s
page-turning novel is both riveting and emotionally rewarding—an extraordinary
story of human connection, bravery, and hope.

Review: 

This book… wow. The sheer amount of emotions I felt while reading this book is incalculable. After reading the description, I knew this was going to be emotional roller-coaster. Despite how excited I was to get an ARC, I actually waited a few days to read it. I knew I needed to be able to devout a few hours to sitting in my bed, reading this book with a box of tissues next to me. After finishing it, I can honestly say that Sonali Dev is one of the most amazing writers I’ve ever read. I had loved Nic and Jen in her previous book, The Bollywood Bride, and really really did not want to read about Jen dying. However, Dev was able to convince me as the reader that Nic and Jess, the heroine, belong together as much as Jen and Nic previously did. Both of her characters have been emotionally run through the wringer and it was so satisfying to see them begin to heal each other. The subplot of this book focuses around black-market organ stealing which provides an interesting physical contrast to emotional pain the characters deal with. I met Sonali Dev at the Baltimore Book Festival two weekends ago and she confirmed that her next book will be continuing that story with two minor characters introduced in A Change of Heart!
