This book follows the life of a particular family's bloodline that stems from the late 1800s. The story begins in India and travels through Trinidad and Tobago, and then Canada. Families are tracked by the surname of the father, so when a change in surname occurs, the family tree is broken. Being part of a historical family, there was a legacy and status to maintain. When a descendant of the Singh family has his name changed after moving abroad, the existing family members cursed his future children, and their children's children, to eradicate the false name. This story is an expression of family, spirituality, strife, and mental health.
