This story demonstrates that culture in not indictive of what women go through. Every woman from every culture experiences the same. We just think we are different, but it is not so. It is when you read the mother's side, that one sees the daughter had one point of view which is normal as she was daddy's girl. I can relate to that. Women hide their pain from children and children judge so harshly. It is not until we grow as a person, not necessarily a mother that we have the ability to see every side of the story. The story reminded me of what my mom has gone through and how difficult it was for women of her era to be a shining star and independent and how easily it was for these brave women who dred to be critized. I love it and recommend it to everyone.

This was a pretty decent book. The novel is sectioned off into two different points of view between the daughter Kamini and her mother Saroja. I wished there had been a third part with the other daughter Roopa speaking but she seemed to be a minor character. Roopa also seemed to be unnecessary to the novel. Other than that is was a good story about mother and daughter relationships and how they are still at a distance from each other. This book might also be useful to people wanting to learn about railway workers in India and thier lives, but more specifically the lives of the railway officer's wives. There isn't a lot of action in this book and the story could have been taken a lot further, but it was ok. Left a little disappointed and unfulfilled by the ending and the entire book.
