I’n doing a book review on book I just got done reading by Shobhan Bantwal it is called “The Sari Shop Widow” here is brief summary of what the book is about I did not write this summary so everyone know.
“Since becoming a widow at age twenty-seven, Anjali Kapadia has devoted herself to transforming her parents’ sari shop into a chic boutique, brimming with exquisite jewelry and clothing. Now, ten years later, it stands out like a proud maharani amid Edison’s bustling Little India. But when Anjali learns the shop is on the brink of bankruptcy, she feels her world unraveling
To the rescue comes Anjali’s wealthy, dictatorial Uncle Jeevan and his business partner, Rishi Shaha mysterious Londoner, complete with British accent, cool gray eyes, and skin so fair it makes it hard to believe he’s Indian. Rishi’s cool, foreign demeanor triggers distrust in Anjali and her mother. But for Anjali, he also stirs something else, a powerful attraction she hasn’t felt in a decade. And the feeling is mutual
Love disappointed Anjali once before and she’s vowed to live without itthough Rishi is slowly melting her resolve and, as the shop regains its footing, gaining her trust. But when a secret from Rishi’s past is revealed, Anjali must turn to her family and her strong cultural upbringing to guide her in finding the truth”
I have found this book to be great read I recamend it to family and friends it’s great read. very well written I will say I loved how it touched on family, how family works together even when things start to go bad. I had some good laughs thoughout the book as for some reason it reminded me of my own life at times, was good to get point of view of young widow you don’t normal come across books written in 21 centery or modern day that talk about such a thing it was good to read something like how it talked about the struggles that she was going still how many years later. The romance I like how they built it up and didn’t just let it hang in the air, What kind of let me down was I wanted to learn more about the uncle would have like to see the uncle get closer to the family more, from begin to end thought it was great read! I would have also like an epilogue as to what happened later on to the family. I have this book 5 stars
