Description

Eight unforgettable portraits of women of remarkable strength and resilience.

In stories that span the last hundred years, Nonda Chatterjee introduces us to a spirited cast of characters.

At the turn of the nineteenth century, a zamindarni defends her bastion-her land, her home and her subjects-with military precision against a formidable force of British soldiers. In a little village in Rewa in the 1950s, a young woman’s fierce loyalty to her untouchable community leads her to make an unimaginable sacrifice. A gifted girl embroiders on a quilt the moving tale of a lifetime of travails overcome by tremendous fortitude. And, closer to our times, Krishna, named after the legendary Draupadi, discovers to her utter surprise that blood-ties seldom determine true family.

Deeply felt, and rendered in vivid, evocative prose, these tales redefine love, faith, friendship and familial bonds.
