Pic courtesy: goodreads
Noya is a young woman who is full of life and is not scared to take her own decisions. She believes in leading a happy life and strongly believes that a happy life comes with bold decisions. Following her ideals, she takes the biggest decision of her life yet - calling off her wedding on the wedding day itself!
This decision turns her life upside down as the people close to her are busy refuting her at every step. Fed up of this negativity, she decides to reboot herself and travel alone. And this marked the beginning of a journey that will once again change the course of her life. On this journey, she meets Ranbir; a meeting which is not intentional but destined. In the beginning, Ranbir comes off as a stalker. However, with time she starts to realize the goodness inside him and slowly but surely, gets attached to him. Standing at the crossroads again, she takes another bold decision to marry Ranbir. Will this finally bring happiness in her life? Noya doesn’t know much about the past of Ranbir as they've just recently met. Will this come back to haunt her later on? Is this another trap? A gripping tale of love, respect and hope, the novel answers all these questions.
The story is about Noya an independent girl looking to find herself by going on a trip alone. The story mainly talks about how people start as strangers and eventually become friends. A guy who helps her out of every odd situation and the one she starts trusting much later. Although I feel in real life it’s difficult to find right people in wrong situations these days. I didn't like the end as i felt it could have been better.
The characters are well defined, and they look real as they too have flaws and are not perfect. They don't sound too good, too perfect to be true kind. The book seems straight like a Bollywood movie, where a damsel in distress is saved by the hero etc. though may sound clichéd, makes a good read. The book talks about friendships, relationships and self-respect. Overall a breezy read that makes you feel good. Somewhere through the story we all connect to the incidents, situations and the way we react to it.
About the author:
The author has done justice to the story she has been trying to share, but as I said I felt the end could have been better. For me it sounds a little incomplete. For being a debutante I liked what I read and would look forward for more.
I would rate this book 3.5/5.
