5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful read! 7 Jun 2014
By Deepa Sethi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a professional Sikh woman born and raised in the US, it was truly refreshing to be able to identify with other Sikh women in the western world and abroad. I felt that I could relate to almost every story on some level. As a Sikh mother, it was so inspiring to read about other Sikh mothers and the values of Sikhi they are instilling in their children at a young age. As a Sikh daughter, living in a home with my in-laws, I absolutely loved the stories about parents and in-laws, stories that addressed ethics, virtues and values, and knowing what matters most. And as a Sikh wife, I adored the stories about marriage and falling in love. Each and every story filled me with such a range of emotions - happiness, sadness, smiles, and some left me in tears. I couldn't wait to turn each page and read what's next. I'm looking forward to coming back to this book time and time again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Community of Women 5 Jun 2014
By Priyneha Gohil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In 2014, Sikh women’s voices are still missing from powerful spaces in our community. You won’t find them on gurdwara committees or singing kirtan at Darbar Sahib. That’s why Her Name is Kaur offers a voice that Sikhs need to hear.

But it also presents a voice that women everywhere need to hear. The timing of Her Name is Kaur fits right in to our Lean In, #yesallwomen era. Its stories remind every woman that each of us stands for all of us. All women – Sikh or not - need to build their own communities or sangats to support, love and reflect on their lives.

Her Name is Kaur is a special text because it allows us to immerse ourselves in our sangat at a moment’s notice. No matter where you’re standing, just open the book to any page and you'll be pulled right back into the safety of that langar kitchen, surrounded by the women and stories that inspire and compel you to be yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A special Book 3 Jun 2014
By Gurvinder Singh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Her Name is Kaur: Sikh American Women Write About Love, Courage, And Faith published by She Writes Press is a book where Sikh American women share stories about what has carved them into the human beings they are today.

Every story’s uniqueness highlights the intuitiveness of each writer in their given or created circumstances.

'Her Name is Kaur' is a special book for Sikh women, yet necessary for a Sikh man. For the Sikh woman it gives a glimpse into your own life, yet transports you into someone else’s in an instant. For a Sikh man, it reminds him that the story of the Kaur stands shoulder to shoulder with his own and reminds him that he is not alone in the journey to live up to his ideals.

Her Name is Kaur is an important collection for every Sikh home, it is sure to capture a non Sikh audience, as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Courageous & Beautifully Inspiring! 16 Aug 2014
By RK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
It's so inspiring to pick up a book that I can relate to on so many levels. All the women that contributed to this amazing book have taken pieces of themselves and shared them openly and honestly. It takes courage to share such beautiful and painful stories and I applaud each and every one of them. We are so much more then our 'labels' and these short stories reflect their female spirit and soul in ways that has never really been spoken aloud before.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn more about Sikh women and the myriad of ways in which they show up in life.
5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! 22 July 2014
By Bhagwandai Singh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I originally read Her Name is Kaur with great excitement to read my daughter's story, Soniye. The level of courage that is evident in each story amazed me. I was in complete awe as I read the stories of such inspiring women. The way in which the women were so deeply connected to their faith inspired me and made me want to further explore my own relationship with God. Further, the way each women describes their love is truly touching. As a mother, it made me think of my own love for my daughter, my grandchildren and my siblings. The novel on a whole inspired me and left me with many smiles.
