MYSTERIES IN THE MORNING

MYSTERIES IN THE MORNING

The Widows of Malabar Hill by Sunjata Massey

Perveen Mistry, the daughter of a respected Zoroastrian family, has just joined her father's law firm, becoming one of the first female lawyers in 1920s Bombay. Armed with a law degree from Oxford, she also has a tragic personal history that makes her especially devoted to championing and protecting women's legal rights. When a wealthy Muslim mill owner dies, leaving 3 widows, Purveen is suspicious because all three have signed over their inheritance to a charity.  

“Women’s History Month is historically celebrated in March in the United States. I wanted to pick a book for this month that focused on a groundbreaking woman. This story is set in 1920s India with a main character who is one of the first female lawyers in India, so I thought this would be a good selection.” -- Meghan
