When people we love pass away, they only take their presence with them. They leave their memories with us. The story revolves around Alia, an emotionally distant woman, and how the lives of four elderly strangers impact her own very deeply, bringing about a change in the way she treats herself and those around her. As the clock begins to tick and they each start to die, leaving their stories behind for her to learn from, she finds that the depression and trauma caused by their loss have left with her the gift of a lifetime… Realization. In the tale of life, death and the ride in between, where there are always mistakes and never second chances, there is only one question. Can you make it through without regrets?

The Main character of this Novel is Alia.
Alia is a woman who faced a lot of struggle in living a good and meaningful life.
She was a kind of person, everyone wants to be, She was beautiful, had a caring nature, and was hard-working as well. But her emotions ruled her life.
This book tells how Alia’s life changes because of the lives of four elderly people, Raman, Hema, Sita, Girish, who despite being strangers left memories in her heart.
Their stories indeed, turned back time.
The book is very well-written and the plot is woven in such a way that the pain of the person could be felt by the reader through the words.
This novel is quite different from the kind of novels I have read in the past.
My Ratings: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆
The book gives us a Life Lesson, which we are often given. It’s better to die with the satisfaction that we have tried and do what we want to do rather than to die with the regret that we never did.
Looking forward to read more from the Author in the Near Future.
