    Loved it. Rating : 4.5 stars I expected something along the lines of Erotic stories for Punjabi widows. But this was gold. It captures the not-so-close sisters who are on a pilgrimage to fulfill their mother's death bed wish. The scenes of the British sisters adapting to the land o...

    Not exactly the kind of novel I usually read. So, for what it's worth I had to do a fast read on this one. Fortunately, the story was well written and fairly easy to comprehend. I loaned the book out to a female and she felt the same way. So, a rating of a 4 is justified. I did win...

    While on her deathbed, Sita asks her three daughters, Rajni, Jezmeen, and Shirina, to make a pilgrimage to India together in order to honor her memory and scatter her ashes. "There's no greater show of love and faith than traveling a long distance for somebody." The sisters are ...

    Luminous! A journey undertaken by the British Punjabi sisters Rajni, Jezmeen, and Shirnia to scatter their mothers ashes in India becomes a pilgrimage towards love, understanding and acceptance, and a reworking of the bond that threads sisters together. Three Sikh sisters reunite t...

    I?m naturally biased towards liking this novel ? Balli is a good friend, and I?m the editor of her Singaporean titles ? but even so, I *loved* it. The relationship between these three sisters felt so real, and their voyage through India as part of their mother?s deathbed requ...

    |4.5 stars| Sometimes we come across a book that feels like a journey in itself. This is one such story. By the end of the book, the Shergill sisters felt like people I have always known. They felt real and all the 'adventures' they were a part of, I found myself alongside them. . ...

    Balli Kaur Jaswal is such a talented storyteller and has managed to write yet another captivating and memorable story. One that is deeply rooted in traditions, culture and sisterhood. If you enjoyed Erotic Stories For Punjabi Widows, you will definitely enjoy this one and I highly r...

    I really loved the author's last book, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, and was really looking forward to this one. This is a family drama, with comedic moments throughout, tackling some pretty heavy topics. While I did enjoy, my biggest gripe is that I feel the title is a bit mislea...

    4.5/5 When I heard that Balli Kaur Jaswal was coming out with a new book, I almost lost my mind. Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows quickly became one of my favorite books of all time. I recommend it to almost everybody and I'm 90% certain that bonding over that book with an intervi...

    3.5 stars There were dramatic, heart-in-your-throat moments at the end of this book, but for the majority of it I was just thinking "why?" Why am I reading about these people? A pilgrimage to India is a story, yes, but it was mostly about character development and the characters did...

    I had read "Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows" and quite enjoyed the author and thus found her other novel. I enjoyed this tale even more. I found it interesting to learn about the Sikh population in London and India of which I knew very little. However, it is also a universal tale of ...

    I was a big fan of the author's debut , released in 2017, way before it became popular due to Reese's Book Club. Unfortunately for most debuts, the author usually becomes a " one-book wonder" because they only have one story. I'm happy that it's not the case for this author. Similar d...
