This is a collection of a novelette and twelve short stories. The title story, A Tapestry of Tears, is set in the nineteenth century. A young couple from an affluent background fights against the time honored tradition of female infanticide. In another story, Division into Two, a family is torn apart by the brutal partition of British-ruled India into India and Pakistan. Told through the voices of an estranged aunt and nephew, it reveals the human tragedy that is often a fallout of social strife.
The other stories also deal with social issues and family relationships.
A Muslim woman suffers when the mujahedeen drive out the Hindu midwife. A grieving husband resents the presence of his new daughter-in-law. Deafness has nothing to do with communication in a marriage, or does it?
Then there is the husband who drives his wife crazy with his obsessive cleaning, the man who loves playing mind games at his wife’s expense, and a family that struggles with the decision to move the aged mother into a home.
The book is likely to appeal to readers of women’s fiction, historical fiction, and also to readers interested in knowing about other cultures.
From amazon reviews:
“Gita Reddy is particularly perceptive about the dynamics of married relationships.”
“To learn of another culture is amazing and this book will give you just that. Each story tells their story and the way that things are.”
“The stories are like pages out of our own lives.”
