MY REVIEW: I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The story is about Mariam, an elderly lady living in Vellore, who is teaching four young women how to crochet.

Though Mariam is extremely critical at times about the crochet work of her four pupils, at the same time, she develops a fondness for each one of them.

The four young women are: Nimra, who is bullied constantly by her stepmother, Arifa, whose husband is away in Dubai, Amreen who is unable to get pregnant and Shaista who is going through an unwanted pregnancy.

In and around the design of each crochet pattern, each young woman’s story, along with her emotions and frustrations are depicted. Mariam, also has her own fascinating love story that she shares with her four pupils.

Mariam’s love story is told in an extremely interesting manner in the form of flashbacks.

All the women try to find a solution to their individual problems while creating an elaborate crochet pattern on a bedspread for Mariam’s granddaughter Faiza.

The author has woven a compelling tale and has beautifully depicted each character and her emotions.

I highly recommend “The Sum of All My Parts”, as a highly enthralling and interesting tale that will touch the heart of every reader!

I am a voracious reader and am always in the middle of a book. I am also obsessed with coffee, makeup, skincare and fitness, though not necessarily in that order!
