Blurb on the Book:

She is a successful author, a loving wife and the worlds best mom. Her doctor husband dotes on her, her teenage daughter idolizes her and her readers yearn for her writing. Shouldn't all that respect and love make her happy?

Yet, she is devoid of inner peace. In the wee hours of the night, her slumber is disturbed by horrifying nightmares. All her harmony is abducted and lost amidst the bunch of hidden letters kept in her cupboard. Those letters were written long back by her cousin, presently a patient at a mental asylum in kolkata.

Haunted by her inner demons and tired by the long-time secrecy, she decides to put end to her misery by surrendering to her husband and daughter, The hidden letters. Will she lose her husbands love and daughters respect? Can she forgive herself for her own selfishness which rendered her cousins fate malignant?

My Review:

I've read quite number of novels but I've never reviewed any , I couldn't stop myself from reviewing this novel. The blurb and the novel's cover took my attention and was so eagerly waiting to read. With so much of happiness and expectation i started reading book and I must say , was not let down. I enjoyed the book lot. It was totally mesmerizing. 

The author has narrated the story in an amazing way that I couldn't stop myself from reading. I really enjoyed how the author conveys story to reader. To say about characters the author has handled exact amount of emotions required. Ananya , a renowned author,wife and a caring mother handles situation in a brave manner and does justice to each role she plays. Author has described each role in a beautiful way as the story goes on and keeps readers cling on. Even when she gets stuck in difficult situations life throws she remains courageous and brave. The favorite part on how to be strong even when time is against us. 

Here's a quote I liked from novel, 

"Being yourself is what you call divine happiness. Happiness is sacred only when you  respect God's creation that is you. God created you with perfection and by being yourself,you can taste sacred happiness."

There's so many situations I liked lot in the novel. Overall I am in love with the novel and i'd recommend it to read.

My rating: 4.5/5 stars!
