A lowly Muslim maid working for a middle-class Hindu family struggles between discovering her Muslim roots and conforming to the only family she’s ever known. Her struggle leaves a path of destruction that she could never have foreseen. Parul is a Muslim maid sold by her father to a middle-class Hindu family. She lives comfortably among the family but is always treated like a second-class citizen. When she comes of age, she meets and starts a love affair with a radical Muslim, a jihadi, Rahim. He poisons her mind against her Hindu family and toward America. When the Hindu father brings an American boy to live with them while he trains for the Olympics, Rahim brainwashes Parul into sabotaging the American boy however she can. The American boy, Michael and the young Hindu daughter fall in love after a rocky first few months living together. The story unwinds as the readers learn more about the background of each of the characters and comes to a head when Parul commits her final betrayal at the end of the novel.
