Nectar in a Sieve book. Kamala Markandaya, authoress extraordinaire, can create emotions no one knew they could feel for written text and hardback cover. Markandaya lived no hard life herself, so the way she weaves a tale with such authority, such knowledge, and such passion about a family Death, theft, prostitution and tenant farming. How could these elements be woven into a tale that inspires, evokes sadness, and creates pathos? Only one tale, spun so well, could this be made possible; that book is Nectar in a Sieve.

This beautiful and eloquent story tells of a simple peasant woman in a primitive village in India whose whole life was a gallant and persistent battle to care for those she loved.

I really enjoyed this novel - the story is interesting, the imagery is beautiful. I enjoyed the characters very much. The publisher (Stellar Classics), however, did a terrible job producing this product. If you're looking for a quality version of this novel, look somewhere else. It is full of grammatical errors (which, as an English teacher drove me CRAZY), and the cover of the book is an awful, pixelated photograph - it looks like the publisher just took a photo from Google images and blew it up to use for the cover. So, while I really enjoyed the story, I do not recommend this particular publication.

I first read this during summer break when I was a young teen, I seemed to have gone through a period when I read women's stories (The Good Earth, etc.). Nectar is one of those books that stays with you, quietly. I now am rereading it because I am old enough to be grandma now and have my own lifetime of experiences, want to see how my evolving life feels about the book now. I got from the book, long ago, how strong women can be, how quiet can sometimes speak louder then anything, how no matter what trials life throws at you, you just continue to do the best you can, you continue to live. I don't particular agree with the Indian (and other cultures) where they marry off their daughters at such a young age, but I have to admire women like Rukmani. She was lucky to be married to a man who respected and honored her--so many girls are married to men who never appreciate what they have, who hate women. I'm glad they came out with a Kindle version too.

I am a big reader - and this book was on my daughter's summer reading list for 9th Grade. I totally enjoyed this book - the author was very descriptive, making the scenes lift off the page. The main character was a strong, but humble woman -- with the book taking you on her life's journey from childhood (12yrs) to that of a grandmother. I would recommend for a preteen/teenager.
  • Precious
Very moving, engrossing, and a must read for all women. The characters are very real and believable. You walk away feeling grateful for your blessings.
  • SkroN
An absolutely beautiful and heart wrenching look at the life of a couple, who,struggled to make a living as tenant farmers in India. An interesting parallel to the Steinbeck classic, "The Grapes Of Wrath.

It was a gift. I cannot evaluate it personally. However, they said they enjoyed it very much.
  • Acrobat
Came quickly and is very high quality. A good read and worth the price.
I read this book because it is assigned to be read in in my son's high school Honors English class. Beautifully written, a precious look into rural India - it's culture, it's people, and change over time. Well- written and enjoyed thoroughly all the way through to the last word.
