ABOUT THE BOOK:
14 February 2009, the first Valentine's Day for Akshay and Neha turned into the worst day of their lives - a day of their indefinite departure. "Akshay, will we ever meet?" Neha asked an innocent question, with quivering lips, to which both had no answer. During the departure, Neha managed to drop a pouch for him escaping the strict surveillance they were undergoing. That pouch became the reason of his survival for the next two years. Two years later, Akshay found a heart-wrenching note in Neha's handwriting in the same place, where their love bloomed and he goes on a journey to reclaim his lost love.
The book has beautifully designed cover with a hint of mystery. It perfectly goes with the title and the story. The title of the book is equally unique and mysterious like the cover. Abhinav Kaushik being a debutant has the ability to win hearts of the book lovers. He has put forth a beautiful life changing the story. I appreciate his creativity which he has inculcated in his story. As a reader, I felt connected to each and every word he wrote. Abhinav's use of language is very appealing, and also the characters are well described. He has amazingly blended the story with deep emotions and tint of mystery at one or the other stage which makes the novel more interesting. To me, the book is simply heart touching and it’s a MUST READ!
Where will his journey lead Akshay to? What soul-shaking fact will he discover? Will their love and prayers bring them together once again? To unfold all the mysteries read the book.
