Blurb: She was not like most of the Indian women we know and read about! She was not someone who wanted to be confined to the kitchen. The wild teenager didn’t want to let go her dreams that got buried when she was married at 18. Filled with love, compassion and a desire, she started to weave back the threads at 40.Will she fulfill her dreams? Will she find her freedom? Or will she find the dust on her furniture more important than the poems in her heart?In this intimate & heartfelt story, you will find a woman’s fight to take possession of her strength & desire. It’s a journey that describes the importance of emotional balance in relationships. It’s a journey that describes a woman. It’s a journey that describes THE WOMAN’S CODE.

As the blurb clearly states, this story revolves around a girl named Sumita (Sumi) who is married at the age of 18 and how her life turns after that and how she deals with it. It is about the ups and downs of her life and her decisions, her struggle, her strength. She is that kind of person who wishes to fulfill her dreams and knows that this is only one life and we should live life the way we want to. But will she achieve what she always dreamt of or no and if yes then how, is all we need to find out from this book.

The story is quite very strong when it comes to portray a women’s character and her characteristics, the way she handles her life, manages her priorities and tackles with the problems surely can inspire all of us. It will not only inspire women but to all of us who really believe in one life and living it to the full. It is for all of us who have dreams in their eyes and surely wish their dreams to come true someday or the other.

The positives of the book that I liked are:
1)      Good story line.
2)       Inspiring.
3)      Writing style is very good, simple and meaningful, not so very complex and hard to understand.
4)      Cover photo does portray life the way Sumita wishes for herself.

The drawback of the book is that it’s not detailed and hence it feels incomplete. In the initial few chapters it feels like the story breaks after the end of every chapter. Continuation lacks. There are some editing mistakes as well. Some parts of the book seem like an inspirational and spiritual article rather than a story. Last but not the least, the main story starts from page 10 to 103 i.e. 94 pages and the price of the book is Rs 99/- which I feel is overpriced.

To sum up with the review it’s a book worth reading to bring back all the confidence and strength in yourself, your life and your dreams. The story would have been amazing if it would have been written in more detailed manner which I am sure the author Binduu Chopra can manage to do because I feel she has a strong story line in this book and has good writing skills.
