The novel has a beautiful cover..Its very romantic picture of a Boy holding a Girl’s hand..There is a tree on left side of the cover..and this cover reminds me of the Bollywood Movie “Mohabbatein”.

The Title of the Novel is on the main character Meera’s story. This Novel is about her life and people around her.

The novel is written beautifully weaving a lot of emotions like affection, care, friendship, love, and understanding.

The story begins with Aarna, who is the daughter of Meera. The story made me emotional. There were incidents where I felt the heaviness on my heart and I was crying.

The novel is about an diary of her mother which Aarna discovers, in which everything was mentioned.

All the characters were written so beautifully and lively which you can relate with. The narration and the language used in story made the plot interesting.

All in all, I am impressed by the author’s ability to make everything fall in place and create a masterpiece. It was an amazing novel.
