24 Festive Tasks-Diwali Task 4



Task 4: During Diwali, people pray to the goddess Lakhshmi, who is typically depicted as a beautiful young woman holding a lotus flower. Find 5 books on your shelves (either physical or virtual) whose covers show a young woman holding a flower and share their cover images.




Those of you who know what books are most popular with me also know that this was a monumental task! I may have stretched the definition of "flowers" here, as well as that of a  "young woman" so please forgive me.
