Wonderful stories of individual experiences in love, loss, and relationships, and in finding a place in a world where the expectations of others might not match one’s own. The author does a great job of putting the reader in the minds of the characters, who are complex and often conflicted individuals struggling to find the right compromises in life. Very interesting book with relatable themes.

What makes Intriguing Women so captivating is that the author presents an authentic depiction of women from wide-ranging backgrounds in the UK, India, Afghanistan and New York, where cultural, ethnic, religious differences and one’s economic and political standing can clash, and where marriage seems to define a woman’s and man’s status. Yet the women in this story face a range of challenges when it comes to defining their role in a mostly patriarchal society. The multifaceted and well-developed characters are capable of making their own decisions, whether good or bad, without being influenced by society at large. Each story explores romance, lust, sex, wit, deception, manipulation, infidelity, same-sex love, domestic dispute, murder, and war. With the many twists and turns, secrets, and shocking revelations, these stories are a mirror of the world, and readers will, surely, identify with some of the characters because they could be your next-door neighbor, friend, co-worker or relative.

No doubt Lakshmi Raj Sharma is a master story teller. Intriguing Women is a must read short story collection. There is much variety in these stories, no two stories are alike. The stories contain women of several kinds but are interesting for men and women alike. I am amazed to find how different it is to Lakshmi Raj Sharma’s novel, The Tailor’s Needle. India is shown as it actually is and so are the other countries in this collection. I strongly recommend this book to lovers of fiction.

If you like to read a collection that takes you into the consciousness of people, both women and men, this is the book to read. I could see what it is to be contemporary after reading these stories. The pain and anguish of today’s relationships are very well balanced with a subtle humour. I laughed through this collection and enjoyed every page of INTRIGUING WOMEN. Don’t miss reading this book of stories.
