A Tapestry of TearsA Tapestry of Tears by Gita V. Reddy

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I received this book free of charge from the author.

Well, this was a treasure. You all know I don’t like short stories. I like getting to know characters deeply. That is why I read so many series. But Gita V. Reddy has pulled off keeping the story short while not leaving the reader empty.

If there was a theme running through these stories it would be “Love”. Though the stories are about Indian families/couples the American reader isn’t lost in cultural differences. The stray non-English word helps in keeping the story authentic but those aren’t over done.

The female dilemmas that plague many countries are merely spoken of in fact as part of the story and not the end goal. That made the stories more interesting.

I found re-reading the last couple stories from other books a little boring but if it were the first time for a reader to see them they might find these interesting.

Well-done, Gita! I do recommend that everyone read this book. It can make you see some of your own flaws to work on in love. It isn’t just for Indian women. It is for everyone!

Detritus

Wow! I made it through a whole month. I managed to write ever day! I just hope it wasn’t too much detritus. There is still so much I need to know about making my blog look nice and have consistency in my writing. I would like to be more organized in my thoughts. But as with NaNoWriMo, I seem to do better off the cuff if I want to keep a habit of writing. 

I have made new friends by checking out other blogs doing this JusJoJan. Does anyone have any ideas to help me keep this up? I do best with some kind of prompt.

Anyway, thank you, Linda G Hill for this fun experience. And thank you, Lorraine of My Frilly Freudian Slip, for the prompt I had to look up. By the way, Linda says we should say, “Hi!” so Hi!
