My Review:

This is a collection of 15 stories......Crisp, clear and thoughtful writing. 

There are stories we read and forget as time passes by. This one is unlike those one time reads. Each one of the stories are unique in their own ways. All the stories are different from one another and the charactrs ar very well defined. While a reader tries to go dep into the plots, author has made it evident that the characters of the stories do not get jumbled in the mind of the reader. The characters are well defined which keeps an identical mark in the resders mind to be alive all throughout. After every story, there will float a moral of the read. The author has not mentioned any moral anywhere across, but the reader's mind is driven to enjoy a thoughtful moment aftr every read. The words are handy and clear. The ideas are transparent. I loved the read of "Time and Space". In this author has allowed the reader to make his/hr desired conclusion since she has left the story open ended.

I overall admired the read. The author has portrayed a number of places which showed a women centric inspiration. A lot of situations created in the plots have been put forward to the audience from a feminine perspective which has given a strong not of authority to the plot. I found it different and encouraging.
It has been a truly refreshing read.
