˜Deeply moving _ so powerful it cant help but explode like fireworks across the final page. “ Trent Dalton This is not a book about divorce. Its not a book about God, either. You might think it is a book about goodness and what it means to be a good person, but it isnt. Like everything else, this is about love. Sita Walker was raised by five strong matriarchs who taught her to believe in God and to be good. Her grandmother, mother and three aunts believed in their unshakeable BaháÃ_ faith, in the power of prayer, in sacrifice, in magic, in the healing of turmeric and tea, and the wisdom of dreams. But as hard as she tries to be good, Sita always suspects that deep down, she isnt very good at all. At thirty-five, she hasnt prayed in years, her dream of true love has died, and along with it, her faith “ not that shes telling her mother, or her aunts. Now, the only way she can fulfill her destiny is to seek out the wisdom of the ones who came before, and truly understand the women who raised her. But will they understand her? Either way, the matriarchy will never be the same again. Traversing decades and continents “ from Iran to India, Sri Lanka to the Czech Republic, Adelaide to the Torres Strait “ The God of No Good is a beautifully lyrical and funny intergenerational memoir about six women and how their lives intertwine. Filled with wit and wisdom, it is a story that only Sita Walker could tell, but it will resonate with readers everywhere.
