Deep dive into Indian culture with this box! You Bring The Distant Near is simply fantastic. This multi-generational story starts with the matriarch of this Indian-American family, Ranee, and her two daughters as they migrate to the United States from England. Told from the perspective of the daughters, and then later the grand-daughters, this book brings you along as they adjust to life in the U.S. Based loosely on the life of author Mitali Perkins, we are offered a window into each character’s struggle with identity and their reconciliation of faith and culture. It also confronts Ranee’s own racism, her pre-conceived notions of African-Americans, and her journey to redemption.
