The writer does a tremendous job cultivating a character for each story in a retrospective manner. The stories leave the reader wishing for a bit more revelation into each of the characters lives.

I found these stories to lack depth. At the end of many of them I felt mostly disappointed like okay... that was it? I understand that they are just snapshots of particular times in the characters lives. But when I think back to Jumpha Lahiri's Unaccustomed Earth I feel cheated by this novel. Perhaps I just dont like the characters and find them all too conservative and unrelatable. Perhaps I was hoping to be able to relate more to the novel like I did with some of the other Indian writers. Overall, I guess its worth reading but I wouldn't say that I have had any profound revelations or that my life would be lacking had I never picked up this book.

Beautifully written story. I was deeply moved. It reminded me of how we humans all face similar challenges. How we face the future, what we carry with us, and who we choose to become.. It is a simply written book, but with great depth. Wonderful author.

This is the first book I have read by Divakaruni. I really liked this book and I couldn't put it down. The short stories provided snapshots into the characters lives, but it left me wanting to know more about some of them. Divakaruni provides great insight on the struggles Indian woman face.

Beautiful Book which takes you on a roller coaster ride of emotions. It will make you experience every emotional humanly possible. The author, Divakaruni, graphically illustrates the characters and their settings that you can't help but feel that you are there.

I bought 3 others of Divakruni's books.
