Dr. Nikhil “Nic” Joshi had it all—marriage, career, purpose—until, while working for Doctors without Borders in a Mumbai slum, his wife, Jen, discovered a black market organ-transplant ring. Before she could expose the truth, Jen was killed.

Two years after the tragedy, Nic is a cruise ship doctor who spends his days treating seasickness and sunburn and his nights in a boozy haze. On one of those blurry evenings on deck, Nic meets a woman who makes a startling claim: she received Jen’s heart in a transplant and has a message for him. Nic wants to discount Jess Koirala’s story as absurd, but there is something about her reckless desperation that resonates despite his doubts.

Jess has spent years working her way out of a nightmarish life in Calcutta and into a respectable Bollywood dance troupe. Now she faces losing the one thing that matters—her young son. She needs to uncover the secrets Jen risked everything for; but the unforeseen bond that results between her and Nic is both a lifeline and a perilous complication.

Delving beyond the surface of modern Indian-American life, acclaimed author Sonali Dev’s page-turning novel is both riveting and emotionally rewarding—an extraordinary story of human connection, bravery, and hope.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Just as one heart leads to another—literally and metaphorically—in Dev’s seductive and complex story of love lost and then found, one layer of mystery leads to the next…Dev moves so expertly through the subtle layers of the tender love story that Nic and Jess—and even Jen—will hold a permanent place in readers’ hearts.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Dev deftly navigates the complex themes of bereavement, motherhood, and how the culture of India exists in America. All the while, she swathes tough, fully realized characters in delicate prose and tackles tragedy with both grittiness and sensitivity…With richly rendered characters, heavy topics, and soulful writing, this is stunning all around.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Mystery, adventure, and romance are spiced with Bollywood glamour in this heart-stopping novel…Dev masterfully probes Jess’ and Nikhil’s rawest emotions through her multilayered Rubik’s cube of a plot…This is riveting, heart-pounding drama. Dev takes the characters and the reader on a death-defying ride. A novelist at the height of her powers.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Dev takes on a tough subject here: the appalling abuse of the poor, especially unprotected young women, by merciless thugs…The triumph of love and hope over tragedy and despair provides an uplifting counterpoint to the dark heart of this work.”

    Library Journal

  • “Dev’s power to wrap the reader in her characters’ pain and then soothe it is nothing short of exhilarating. Nik and Jess’ eventual bond feels organic and gloriously regenerative. A Change of Heart cements this author’s standing as not only one of the best but also one of the bravest romance novelists working today.”
