A lively, sexy, and thought-provoking East-meets-West story about community, friendship, and women’s lives at all ages—a spicy and alluring mix of Together Tea and Calendar Girls.

Every woman has a secret life . . .

Nikki lives in cosmopolitan West London, where she tends bar at the local pub. The daughter of Indian immigrants, she’s spent most of her twenty-odd years distancing herself from the traditional Sikh community of her childhood, preferring a more independent (that is, Western) life. When her father’s death leaves the family financially strapped, Nikki, a law school dropout, impulsively takes a job teaching a “creative writing” course at the community center in the beating heart of London’s close-knit Punjabi community.

Because of a miscommunication, the proper Sikh widows who show up are expecting to learn basic English literacy, not the art of short-story writing. When one of the widows finds a book of sexy stories in English and shares it with the class, Nikki realizes that beneath their white dupattas, her students have a wealth of fantasies and memories. Eager to liberate these modest women, she teaches them how to express their untold stories, unleashing creativity of the most unexpected—and exciting—kind.

    I really wish I could say I loved this book. I wanted too, but I found it to be really slow to get into. I really enjoyed the mystery aspect in regards to Maya and what happened to her, and it was interesting to see the character development of Nikki, Kulwinder and Tarampal. There was a lot of twists and turns I wasn’t expecting, but overall I did end up enjoying the book.

    Unexpectedly enjoyed this book. Completely out of my norm but a good change of pace. I liked how this book had the point of view from a traditional older Punjabi woman and a younger modern Punjabi woman and how their view of the world was different. Although the main character Nikki’s attitude somewhat bothered me at times she claims to be a “feminist” which is about females making their own choices but then completely dismisses her sisters choice to an arranged marriage, no one actually forces her sister into an arranged marriage she chooses it herself. I do like Nikki’s character growth and how at the end she learns an appreciation for her community and that the widows have helped with realizing what she wants to do with her life.Overall 4 out of 5 stars a good book for a quick read.
