Stories that span emotions from pathos and despair to hope and even humour, bringing alive the world of women: Women losing, women winning; women being women.

A young girl finds herself looking on as her mother listens to the woes of the world, always offering a sympathetic ear and a shoulder to cry on—while harbouring a bitter secret few know of. A woman and her brother try to come to terms with the knowledge of their mother’s infidelity. In a flood in Assam, a family is ruined and their daughter finds herself sent off to an unseen bridegroom in faraway Delhi. In a colonial bungalow in the heart of rural India, a lonely old woman notices the stark difference between her privileged life and that of the poor around her. But who, really, is more privileged? In the span of a bus journey, a prostitute and a nun find they have more in common than they had imagined. And in the snowfields of Kashmir, a young widow takes her revenge on the man who killed her husband in the only way she knows…
Written with sensitivity but unafraid to explore the hidden secrets and dark corners in ordinary lives, Woman to Woman is a collection of twelve beautifully crafted short stories by award-winning writer Madhulika Liddle.
