First of all the cover is so eye soothing and I found it beautiful with the apt title.
Narration has a moderate pace made easy to read for all kinds of readers in a lucid language .
Raj and Vira are two constrasting characters but they shortly fall in love and decide to bind themselves in to marriage.
The Story beautifully portrays the heart warming relation which turns in a clash of disagreements as pressure of responsibilities and disagreements of opinions arise between them.
The plot is kept quite realistic. But the big twist comes when Vira comes to know she cannot give birth and she pushes Raj away to almost like release him from this bind and let him pursue his long kept dreams.
There are different twists. I dont really want to leak and be a spoiler just to let you know couple of decades later one writer emerges with a character mentioned in his work. Who is this and who is the character. How fate plays its roles ? To know more read this book.

Also you may follow author on social medias for amazing life and book quotes.

The emotions are waived with captivating words that help visualize the moments , feel them and the background easily.
Reality is sometimes different so Life too sometimes puts forward ups and downs challenging relationships , but if hearts are connected even fate too paints the best picture for them with it’s own strokes.
The only cons – If fonts were a big bigger I would have loved it for the book is asthetically pleasing.
It is a nice good book.

I rate 4/5
