What is this book all about?

Ayesha is a young travel-writer, who has been stumbling along in her search for love. Nursing a broken heart, she decides to visit her parents in Ahmedabad for a short reprieve. Even as she struggles to resign herself to a marriage ‘arranged’ by her parents, she runs into their neighbor’s attractive son. Parth is more than happy to spend time in his own company, in the comforts of his ‘resort’. His plan to take some time off before he plunges head long into his career lands him in front of a lovely girl. The pain in her eyes belies her warm smile and he finds himself irresistibly drawn to her. Yet he knows that this cannot end well, for any intimacy with her is forbidden. Fate plays a cruel trick with Ayesha when it ends her search for love in a cul-de-sac, a point of no return. Ayesha is distraught when she realizes that the one person she has finally fallen in love with, is not hers to be had. They part ways with memories that will return to haunt them and questions that will remain unanswered, until another tryst, seven years later on the other side of the world.


I have been extremely busy at work and that leaves me hardly any time to do any reading. I wanted to read a short read as I have been lazing around the whole day and that is when I picked up this book. The language is easy to understand and the story is fast paced. I loved the choice of words that was used and also the poems which were written so well.  The siblings relationship and friendship has been described well. I also loved where the parents did not pressurize their daughter to get married and the characters were portrayed well which impressed me the most. The only thing which I did not like about this book is that where Parth is casual and starts calling Ayesha as baby and girl.


Love, pain, relationships and emotions have been described so well. If you are looking for a short and good read This is one book which I can recommend to everyone.
