“To have been loved so deeply, even though the person who loved us is gone, will give us some protection forever.” – JK Rowling.
This is a simple yet beautiful romantic fiction that will leave you happy and sad at the same time. It is the story of Mira and Rahul. They both fall in love and get married with the approval of their families. Their married life was not always a bed of roses; they had their fair share of fights too. But the way they deal it with maturity is very inspiring. Mira is living a dream life when all of a sudden her world comes crashing down when Rahul dies in a freak accident. How Mira recovers from the loss, how her family supports her throughout, how she builds her life back again on her own is the best part of the book.
Loss of a loved one is one of the worth things a person can experience in life. Getting through the loss of a loved one takes time and support from everyone around us. The healing process differs for each person. I came to know about the five stages of grief – denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance by watching Grey’s Anatomy. It reminded me of what Meredith said about the loss of your loved one and the five stages of grief. The book flows with flashbacks and tells how each moment is precious with your loved one. Every precious moment needs to be cherished. You never know what tomorrow might bring.
The title of the book is apt and the cover suits the story as well. This book is gripping and I finished it one go. This beautiful story of love, loss, and survival is a must-read if you are looking for a good book to immerse yourself. It’s one of the best love stories that I have read in recent times. The characters are lovable. The narrative is strong and appealing. You would want to finish it in one go. This book gives hope. It is full of positivity and shows with love and support you can tackle anything that life throws at you. This book sure left me reminiscing my precious moments with my loved ones, especially in today’s hard times with Corona spreading throughout the world.
I would rate the book 4/5. Thank you Writers Club India for the opportunity to read and review this book.
