Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal is a warm and funny book about one woman’s quest to break free from her culture’s conservative attitude of women and live a modern, independent life in the U.K. Struggling to find a job and make ends meet, Nikki ironically applies for a job to teach creative stories to women in Southall, a city outside of London with a primarily Punjabi population. In a comical twist, Nikki realizes that her class is made up of Punjabi widows whose creative stories take on a surprising, erotic twist.
This book has a little something for everyone, romance, mystery, comedy and an overriding theme that people are not always what they appear to be. Nikki’s journey trying to break free from her conservative community actually delivers a powerful message that sometimes we are running from the people who are trying to help us the most.
This is a truly enjoyable book that will keep you engaged from the start. A must read! Buy it here.
