‘You immediately come to care about these women and about what will happen to them,’ Donna Foley Mabry, Bestselling Author of Maude.
‘Fiction though this book may be, these stories are built from truth and history,’ Pooled Ink Reviews on Goodreads.

The stories span a range of emotions and also bring to life the varied culture and social spectrum of India.
Set in the nineteenth century, A Tapestry of Tears is about a young mother’s struggle to save her infant daughters from the remorseless practice of kurimar – the putting to sleep of female infants at birth.
This collection of a novelette and twelve short stories explores relationships and the strength of the human spirit. 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? Women use embroidery to create a talisman for pain. Then there is the man who loves playing mind games at his wife’s expense, a family that struggles with the decision to move the aged mother into a home, and a young woman who sacrifices love for family honor.

EXCERPT FROM A TAPESTRY OF TEARS
“When I look at the trophies that line the walls of the haveli, at the stuffed heads of boar and stag, and the tiger with its mouth opened in a futile snarl, I wonder. I am a woman, only a midwife. I don’t know what it means to be a man and a zamindar. I don’t know what it is to ride into the jungle with attendants, to chase an animal, to corner it, and to kill it. It must be an act of courage because the man is praised for his bravery.
“But can you imagine what courage it takes to pour those two drops into the mouth of a babe? And the child you have carried yourself, one who is a part of your own body, whose heartbeat was a resonance of your own? Just as a man is not allowed to show fear on a hunt, women are not expected to waver in snuffing out that tiny life. Does a man remember the look in the eyes of a dying deer? Perhaps he does. A woman does not forget the face of the dead child. The child lives on as a phantom, clutching at her heart, and troubling her sleep.”
