review A Respectable Woman Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB Easterine Kire Ñ 3 summary   In her new novel Easterine Kire explores one woman’s journey through these altered realities In doing so she also uncovers the underbelly of a society in transition one that is reluctant to cast off traditional ways even as it entangles itself in the problems of the modern world. My Rating 45The setting is Post WWII Kohima Nagaland The British South Asian empire is almost retreating The Japanese attack has left Kohima in shatters The village has to build itself back The radio has arrived bringing along with it the news of the world outside the Naga hills The war brought the outside world so much closer to us in fact it brought the world to usKerosene lamps are getting replaced by electricity The Church is doing its bit in helping both the Christians and traditional non Christian natives The Indian forces are creating havoc Alcohol is about to be banned leading to a chain reaction of bootlegging and alcoholism which leads to domestic violence Told through the eyes of one Angami girl Kevinuo and her mother the story spans through two generations Easterine writes her characters as both strong and delicate She smartly keeps her plot true to the historical time line Historical fiction done right The story does get a bit convenient The ending could have been a little less unpredictable The tight editing helpsThis made me miss home Referring to the Living room as the sitting room The coal iron that we still use in the North East in spite of the electric iron box Warm family meals in the kitchen around the fire Easterine paints uite a picture She explores relationships loss and death beautifully You live your best and your best is about doing the things that gives others peace because that is the very thing that will give you peaceI am convinced I like her writing and will not shy away from reading of her books
