Book review - One hundred shades of white

One Hundred Shades of WhiteOne Hundred Shades of White by Preethi Nair
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very well written, with two protagonists - mother and daughter, telling their stories, giving their own perspectives to the same situation. A beautiful concept wonderfully executed!
It is about culture conflicts and how one adapts oneself to changing cultural environments depending on ones upbringing. It also establishes a relationship between aromas with memories and attitudes. All this is beautifully delineated in the characters uniquely woven.
It is also about women empowerment and how when the going gets tough women get tougher and their capability to cope and own the situations.
A book that brings out the Devi or Goddess in every woman who can work miracles, also how the woman is responsible for being the glue for families to stay together despite adversities.

A must read for a joyful, insightful roller coaster ride of emotions.
