My Review 

          A woman plays many roles in their lifetime; from a daughter to a daughter-in-law, mother to mother-in-law, sister to sister-in-law, wife, friend and many more. Sometimes while fulfilling the duties of all the roles she tends to spare no time or thought for herself.

          As the authoress says “Time is a magician.” It heals the wounds, it revives the memories; it brings smile on face and sometimes tears in eyes.

          Sands of Time is an anthology of 12 short stories with woman as the protagonists.

          Each story is unique. Some will make you smile, some leave you shocked. Some will make you feel proud of the character and some will make you feel pity. Each protagonist is unique. When you read the stories you will feel you have read it somewhere. Each story you read has a realistic touch.

          Time is best teacher. And Sands of Time is collection of lessons learnt. Sands of Time is one book which you can finish in one sitting (as the book is of just 127 pages) but the stories will remain etched in mind for a long time.
