Picture this: a group of older women, likely in their seventies and eighties, sitting around chatting. Could be the bus or train, the park, that one corner or the community center. What do you think they are talking about? I would have thought aches and pains, or their kids or grandkids. Maybe the weather? Or the daytime soaps they are into? Well, according to Balli Kaur Jaswal, they are talking about sex, graphically. And that may just be the best thing ever.
And of course, we also have a pinch of a romance. Nikki meets someone whose ideals are a match for her own, and their budding romance is wonderfully realistic. They both definitely make missteps, but that fits the story, and is secondary to Nikki’s personal journey. It was nice to see, but definitely not the focus of the story.
Aside from my issues with the murder mystery element, the characters in this story are absolutely fabulous, lovely women, who have minds of their own, regardless of the cultural norms in their community. As one of them says, ‘who would think that a group of widows would be talking about anything other than their aches and pains Who would even be listening to them?’ Well, if this is the talk that’s going on, I definitely want to listen!
