Description:
 [Online] The Unlikely Adventures of the Shergill Sisters by Balli Kaur Jaswal. The British-born Punjabi Shergill sistersóRajni, Jezmeen, and Shirinaówere never close and barely got along growing up. As adults, they've grown even farther apart. Rajni, a school principal, is a stickler for order. Jezmeen, a 30-year-old struggling actress, fears her big break may never come. Shirina, the peacemaking "good" sister, married into wealth and enjoys a picture-perfect life. On her deathbed, their mother voices one last wish: that her daughters will make a pilgrimage together to the Golden Temple in Amritsar to carry out her final rites. Arriving in India, these sisters make unexpected discoveries about themselves, their mother, and their lives.
