  • Description

    The new novel from the bestselling author of That Long Silence

    The narrator in The Binding Vine is the clever, sharp-tongued Urmi, grieving over the death of her baby daughter and surrounded by, but rebuffing, the care of her mother and her childhood friend, Vanaa.

    Instead, she becomes caught up in the discovery of her long-dead mother-in-law's poetry, written when she was a young woman subjected to rape in her marriage; and in Kalpana, a young woman hanging between life and death in a hospital ward, also the victim of rape.

    Yet, in this web of loss and despair are the glimmerings of hope. Shashi Deshpande explores with acuity and compassion the redemptive powers of love.

    Brilliant

    The story is very much short but elaborated by decorative words and situations ...but I recommend this because it is all about a woman's strength and stand against the injustice being done to other women.
