520    "Caught between cultures, immigrant families from a 
       Bengali neighbourhood in Toronto strive to navigate their 
       home, relationships, and happiness. Set in both Canada and
       Bangladesh, Home of the Floating Lily follows the lives of
       the characters as they navigate the complexities of 
       migration, displacement, love, friendship, and familial 
       conflict. A young woman moves to Toronto after getting 
       married but soon discovers her husband is not who she 
       believes him to be. A mother reconciles her heartbreak 
       when her sons defy her expectations and choose their own 
       paths in life. A lonely international student returns to 
       Bangladesh and forms an unexpected bond with her domestic 
       helper. A working-class woman, caught between her love for
       Bangladesh and her determination to raise her daughter in 
       Canada, makes a decision after a dark secret from the past
       is revealed. In each of the stories, characters embark on 
       difficult journeys in the search of love, dignity, and a 
       sense of belonging."--|cProvided by publisher.
