Generously Yours - Review

Every story is a journey of sorts - an imaginary journey on which the author takes the reader.  Sometimes it can be a casual walk down the drive taking in all the sights and smells; sometimes it can be a tour around the town on top of a bus; still other times it can be a complete roller coaster ride. And these journeys can be physical or mental. As Yudishtra of Mahabharata says "The thing that travels fastest is the human mind." Journeys of the mind cover the longest distance. Inderpreet Kaur's "Generously Yours: His Gift from Beyond is one such journey of the mind.

We start with Diya brooding over her husband. This story avoids exposition and jumps right into the story allowing reader to figure out what is happening. She is thinking about her past and her future. She picks items in the house one by one and each triggers a memory. Through the memories we learn of the life she has lived so far. And we come to know her husband Viren is no longer in the world. The story is about how she copes with the situation and builds up positive thoughts.

She gets the answer from her husband himself - from her memories of what he said and finally finds succor. That is the "His Gift from Beyond' in the title.

The story is told in a stream of consciousness format and keep the reader engaged with its smooth flow.  When you talk of stream of consciousness, first name that comes to mind is Virginia Woolfe. This story is somewhat similar in format to Mrs. Dalloway - all the events in the story happen over a single day. And most of it is flash backs. Of course this being a short story, lacks complexity and layers. This is a much more straightforward story of a problem, a mental journey jumping across space and time, a finally a resolution.

Overall a well written book that can serve as a quick 10 minute read to fill in the empty hours of your day.

The book can be bought here.

This book was given to me as a review copy as part of the Book Club Tour.

‘Love is forever’ or so thought Diya. 
Shy, bookish and loving, Diya never thought she would ever need to be anything else. Her charmed life slips away from her in ways, she never imagined. 
Will Viren be able to sort the jumble of their lives or is it already too late? 
A bittersweet story of life, longing, and lasting love.
