I have never felt a title to be more appropriate for a novel then Thrity Umrigar’s The Space Between Us. This novel is about a middle-class Indian woman, Serabai, and her house servant, Bhima. Together the two face many family struggles and rely on each other to overcome the obstacles. The two women forge a bond unlike any other, but are forced to deny their relationship due to social standing and cultural prejudices; thus, this denial creates spaces between the two women. Umrigar weaves a tale of hardship, disappointment, nostalgia, hope, and love.
