Through the perspectives of several women whose lives intertwine over a generation, Raminder Sidhu deftly exposes the shrouded violence within Canada's Punjabi community, a difficult and often dissembled subject. Sidhu's characters are women caught between two cultures, struggling to understand the traditions they are obliged to follow while still embracing and often welcoming the fundamentally different values of the West.
Raminder Sidhu was born and raised in Mackenzie, BC, and now resides in Surrey. She holds a B.Ed. from the University of British Columbia and a BBA from the University of the Fraser Valley. 'Tears of Mehndi' is her debut novel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from East Indian with Western Values This book definitely explores the lines between culture and Western Values. It reminded me what it feels like to be an East Indian woman living in Canada. I felt like I could relate with some of the characters in the novel =) pleasant read
