Novel centers around Meena, a young Indo-Canadian woman growing up in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia, and traces her life as she struggles to assert her independence in a Punjabi community. Raised by her tradition-bound widowed mother, Meena knows the freedoms of her Canadian peers can never be hers, but unlike her sisters, she is reluctant to submit to a life that is defined by a suitable marriage. Though a narrative moving between race and culture, it is ultimately a story of love, loss and self acceptance amidst shifting cultural ideals.

"Everything was Good-bye" was not bad but it wasn't great, either. A story with too little plot, it was a romance smothered in molasses: sickly sweet and slow moving. Even the death scene was ho-hum; a case of manslaughter and not murder. There are better and more lively reads than this novel.
