Saree product reviews

Nila wasn't born beautiful and is destined to go through life unnoticed... until she becomes a saree maker. As she works, Nila weaves into the silk a pattern of love, hope and devotion, which will prove to be invaluable to more lives than her own.

From the lush beauty of Sri Lanka, ravaged by bloody civil war, to India and its eventual resting place in Australia, this is the story of a precious saree and the lives it changes forever. Nila must find peace, Mahinda yearns for his true calling, Pilar is haunted by a terrible choice, Sarojini doubts her ability to love, Madhav is a holy fraud and Marion's understanding of the very meaning of love is challenged and transformed. Each teeters between joy and pain, and each is touched by the power and beauty of the saree.

A breathtaking story of beauty, oppression and freedom... and of an enduring love that can never be broken.

I was given this book as a Christmas present and seeing it was 563 pages I thought it would take a few days to read but once I started reading I found it was really really hard to put this book down and had to force myself to go to bed at 2am and not continue reading. I really wanted to see how the ends would be tied together, I knew that the main characters would have to come together again and each time things happened I just wanted things to go right.

At first I thought that it was going to be six short unrelated stories, due to the sudden change in characters but it didn't take long before I noticed that the story moves in mysterious ways and found the ending tied up all the loose ends really nicely. I had managed to guess how some of it would happen and was really happy with a happily ever after with a difference.

The story deals with love and racial tension, Romeo and Juliet style romance and young lovers trying to deal with family expectations and disappointments. I could tell that things would not end well but I never expected the first part of the story to end that way. The book also shows how girls and women are treated like second class citizens and only baby boys are prized.

I notice hat there are more books by this author so I'm going on a mission to find and read them. Well done for telling a great story and not leaving unanswered questions at the end of the book
