Resumen del libro

The bestselling phenomenon from France. Smita, Giulia, Sarah: three lives, three continents, three women with nothing in common, but nevertheless bound by a rare expression of courage - like three strands in a braid. India. Smita is an untouchable, married to a 'rat-hunter, her job to clean with her bare hands the village latrines, just like her mother before her. Her dream is to see her daughter escape this same fate, and learn to read. When this hope is shattered, she takes matters into her own hands, despite her husbands warnings, despite the odds stacked against her . . . Sicily. Giulia is a worker in her father's wig workshop, the last of its kind in Palermo.
She classifies, washes, bleaches, and dyes the hair provided by the city's hairdressers. When her father is the victim of a serious accident, she quickly discovers her family have been living a lie . Canada. Sarah is a successful lawyer. As a twice-divorced mother of three children, she ploughs through cases at breakneck speed. Just as she is about to be promoted, she learns she has breast cancer. Her seemingly perfect existence begins to show its cracks .
Laetitia Colombani's The Braid is the powerfully moving story of three women's courage in the face of adversity.
