The author had illustrated the heart of a girl and the pain that conceals beneath her smile. There is some great heart touching moments in the book.
The characters are different and well developed. Narration of each character is very impressive. Each one has a very profound meaning for their existence. There were a few parts the story was little excessively dragged. The length of the story could have been shortened.
This is one book that lingers in your mind for a long time. Many memorable and meaningful quotes are strewn throughout the book.
My favorite quotes from the book:
"You do not calculate consequences while dealing with emotions"
"Chastity is not an attribute of body, but soul"
The author promises an exciting adventure and fulfills the promise. I'd be looking forward to read more from the author in future.
