The Hope Factory by Lavanya Sankaran

Upstairs, downstairs: Downton Abbey meets The Help in this exploration of the relationship between a family and the people who work for them—the ways they are different and the things they share. Plot notes: As two closely entangled families in India skirt disaster for very different reasons, they attempt to stay afloat despite seemingly endless hurdles. Reading rainbow: Remember the good old days when you’d find a library chair or beanbag and curl up and read for hours? Sankaran’s storytelling skills will take you back to that place.
