Thank you Algonquin Books for gifting me a copy of this book in exchange of an honest review. All opinions are my own.
I rate this book a 3 out of 5 Stars.
I appreciated the diversity in this book, and the in depth look into India’s culture. I loved the bond between the ladies in this book, and the strength they all had. The writing was very pretty. I love that when these women were faced with losing their homes, they banded together, and fought for their homes.
In full disclosure, I did struggle getting into this book, and becoming fully attached to the characters. But once I got about 60% into the book, it really started coming together for me, and since it’s on the smaller side, it was a very quick read. I do believe not many readers have this same issue though, so please take my words with a grain of salt.
I did find the right style to be very flowy, pretty, and delicate. This book was written with passion, and you can very obviously tell that the Author loved the story she was weaving.
