A lively, sexy, and thought-provoking East-meets-West story about community, friendship, and womenA??s lives at all agesA??a spicy and alluring mix of Together Tea and Calendar Girls. Every woman has a secret life... Nikki lives in cosmopolitan West London, where she tends bar at the local pub. The daughter of Indian immigrants, sheA??s spent most of her twenty-odd years distancing herself from the traditional Sikh community of her childhood, preferring a more independent (that is, Western) life. When her fatherA??s death leaves the family financially strapped, Nikki, a law school dropout, impulsively takes a job teaching a "creative writing" course at the community center in the beating heart of LondonA??s close-knit Punjabi community. Because of a miscommunication, the proper Sikh widows who show up are expecting to learn basic English literacy, not the art of short-story writing. When one of the widows finds a book of sexy stories in English and shares it with the class, Nikki realizes that beneath their white dupattas, her students have a wealth of fantasies and memories. Eager to liberate these modest women, she teaches them how to express their untold stories, unleashing creativity of the most unexpectedA??and excitingA??kind. As more women are drawn to the class, Nikki warns her students to keep their work secret from the Brotherhood, a group of highly conservative young men who have appointed themselves the communityA??s "moral police." But when the widowsA?? gossip offers shocking insights into the death of a young wifeA??a modern woman like NikkiA??and some of the class erotica is shared among friends, it sparks a scandal that threatens them all.
