The beauty of the tale is that the author has chosen the MCs all educated highly placed professionals in the urban backdrop very much contemporary and at the verge of getting married. At this vulnerable stage they take to many a good activities in spending their time..
I am happy to read about the fondness of Elene towards her grandmother Anne
Mithila childhood days could melt our heart.. Her desire to adopt a girl child is a good idea.
The great solace in reading this book is it talks about the youth touching the good aspects of life. Like social service , attending meditation classes for relieving stress. . The story is neat and soul centric many times conveying several messages.
The tittle and sub tittle are good. Cover design by Hammad is nice.
I like the author Arun’s definition of love
One is in love when she is ready to prioritize her partner’s needs over hers.
What i feel is that there is no depth in this social drama and the plot is thin and events are predictable The language is poetic, some times mundane. .Editing needs improvement.
The book is light read for romance fans.
My score :4/5
