House of Waiting is a sweeping, lyrical first novel by Marina Tamar Budhos that charts the stormy marriage between Sarah Weissberg, a sheltered New York woman of Orthodox Jewish parentage, and Roland Sing, a charismatic Indo-Caribbean man. The two are drawn together by their passion and a shared sense of being outsiders in 1950s America. When Roland leaves his wife in New York almost immediately after their marriage to seek his destiny in a bitter political struggle in his native British Guiana, Sarah creates her own community with his East Indian friends in a summer house in upstate New York. Ultimately, she gains the strength to make a dangerous journey to the Caribbean to save her marriage and learn the truth about her husband.
